Installing SnapCenter Plug-in Packages for Linux or Windows on multiple remote hosts by using cmdlets

You can install the SnapCenter Plug-in Packages for Linux or Windows on multiple hosts simultaneously by using the Install-SmHostPackage PowerShell cmdlet.

Before you begin

You must have logged in to SnapCenter as a domain user with local administrator rights on each host on which you want to install the plug-in package.

Steps

  1. Launch PowerShell.
  2. From the Snap Creator Server command prompt, enter the following command, and then enter your credentials: Open-SMConnection
  3. From the command prompt, enter the following command: Install-SmHostPackage -skipprecheck
    Example
    Alternatively, you can enter the Install-SmHostPackage command and options. For example:
    Install-SmHostPackage -HostNames @("10.231.72.165","10.231.72.99") 
    -ApplicationCode HANA -FilesystemCode SCU -RunAsName HANAPlugin -Skipprecheck

    You can use the -skipprecheck option when you have already installed the plug-ins manually and you do not want to validate whether the host meets the requirements for installing the plug-in.

    The following prompts are displayed:

    hostnames
    Specifies the list of hosts on which you want to install the available plug-ins. If possible, you should use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) because SnapCenter relies on the proper DNS configuration. You must separate host names with a comma.
    Best Practice: NetApp recommends using quotation marks.
    ApplicationCode
    Specifies the code of the plug-in that you want to install. To install the SnapCenter Plug-in for SAP HANA Database, you should enter HANA.
    FilesystemCode
    Specifies the code for one or more of the plug-in packages that you want to install. The following values are valid:
    • SCW
    • SCU
  4. Enter your Run As credentials for remote installation.
