Adding a single VM or datastore to a resource group

You can quickly add a single VM or datastore to any existing resource group managed by the Plug-in for VMware vSphere.

About this task

You can add SAN and NAS datastores but not VSAN or VVOL datastores.


  1. In the VMware vSphere web client GUI, click in the toolbar, and navigate to the VM or datastore that you want to add.
  2. In the left Navigator pane, right-click on the VM or datastore, select NetApp SnapCenter from the drop-down list, and then select Add To Resource Group from the secondary drop-down list.
    The system first checks that SnapCenter manages and is compatible with the storage on which the selected VM is located and then displays the Add To Resource Group page. If the message SnapCenter Compatibility Error is displayed, then the selected VM is not compatible with SnapCenter. If the selected VM is not compatible, then you must first add the appropriate SVM to SnapCenter.
  3. In the Add To Resource Group page, select a resource group, and then click OK.
