Modifying storage system configuration

You can use SnapCenter to modify your storage system configuration if you want to change the user name, password, platform, port, protocol, timeout period, preferred IP address, or messaging options.

About this task

You can modify storage connections for an individual user or for a group. If you belong to one or more groups with permission to the same storage system, the storage connection name is displayed multiple times in the storage connection list, once for each group with permission to the storage system.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage Systems.
  2. In the Storage Systems page, from the Type drop-down perform one of the following actions:
    Select... Steps...
    ONTAP SVMs To view all the SVMs that were added and to modify the required SVM configuration.
    1. In the Storage Connections page, click the SVM name.
    2. Perform one of the following actions:
      • If the SVM is not part of any cluster, in the Modify Storage System page, modify the configurations such as user name, password, EMS and AutoSupport settings, platform, protocol, port, timeout, and preferred IP.
      • If the SVM is part of a cluster, in the Modify Storage System page, select Manage SVM Independently and modify the configurations such as user name, password, EMS and AutoSupport settings, platform, protocol, port, timeout, and preferred IP.

        After modifying the SVM to be managed independently, later if you decide to manage it through cluster, you should delete the SVM and click Rediscover. The SVM will be added to the ONTAP cluster.
