Adding your NetApp Support Site account to Cloud Manager is required to deploy a node-based BYOL system or to enter the serial number for a capacity-based license. It’s also required to register pay-as-you-go systems and to upgrade ONTAP software.

  1. If you don’t have a NetApp Support Site account yet, register for one.

  2. In the upper right of the Cloud Manager console, click the Help icon, and select Support.

  3. Click NSS Management > Add NSS Account.

  4. Enter the user name and password for your account.

    • The account must be a customer-level account (not a guest or temp account).

    • If you plan to deploy a node-based BYOL system:

      • The account must be authorized to access the serial numbers of the BYOL systems.

      • If you purchased a secure BYOL subscription, then a secure NSS account is required.

  5. Click Register.

What’s next?

Users can now select the account when creating new Cloud Volumes ONTAP systems and when registering existing systems.
