How to use the NetApp Element Plug-in for vCenter Server

The NetApp Element Plug-in for vCenter Server enables you to configure, manage, and monitor NetApp Element clusters in the VMware vSphere Web Client. You can make cluster-wide changes using the configuration and management extension points.

The NetApp Element Configuration extension point allows you to add and manage clusters, assign vCenter Servers for Linked Mode, and configure management node settings for QoSSIOC. The NetApp Element Management extension point gives you a comparable monitoring and management interface to the Element UI for central, cluster-wide control of your storage system.
