Discovering ONTAP clusters

Discovering an ONTAP cluster in Cloud Manager enables you to provision storage and replicate data across your hybrid cloud.

  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.
