Discovering ONTAP clusters

Discovering an ONTAP cluster that is in your network or in a NetApp Private Storage configuration enables you to replicate data to and from the cloud.

Before you begin

You must have the cluster management IP address and the password for the admin user account to add the cluster to Cloud Manager.

Cloud Manager discovers ONTAP clusters using HTTPS. If you are using custom firewall policies, they must meet the following requirements:

Steps

  1. On the Working Environments page, click Add environment.
  2. Under Discover, select ONTAP.

    Screen shot: Shows the Existing On Premises Cluster icon.

  3. On the ONTAP Cluster Details page, enter the cluster management IP address and the password for the admin user account, and then select the type of working environment: an on-premises cluster or a NetApp Private Storage configuration.
  4. On the Details page, enter a name and description for the working environment, and then click Go.

Result

Cloud Manager discovers the cluster. You can now create volumes, replicate data to and from the cluster, and launch OnCommand System Manager to perform advanced tasks.
