Configuring QoSSIOC settings

You can configure the QoSSIOC settings for the Element management node (mNode) using the NetApp Element Configuration extension point. These configurations are required to enable and use the QoSSIOC service.

Procedure

  1. Select NetApp Element Configuration > QoSSIOC Settings.
  2. Click Actions.
  3. In the resulting menu, select Configure.
  4. In the Configure QoSSIOC Settings dialog box, enter the following information:
    • mNode IP Address/FQDN: The IP address of the management node for the cluster that contains the QoSSIOC service.
    • mNode Port: The port address for the management node that contains the QoSSIOC service. The default port is 8443.
    • QoSSIOC User ID: The user ID for the QoSSIOC service. The QoSSIOC service default user ID is admin. For NetApp HCI, the user ID is the same one entered during installation using the NetApp Deployment Engine.
    • QoSSIOC Password: The password for the Element QoSSIOC service. The QoSSIOC service default password is solidfire. If you have not created a custom password, you can create one from the Registration UI (https://[management node IP]:9443).
      Note: For NetApp HCI deployments, the default password is randomly generated during installation. To determine the password, see procedure 4 in this KB article.
    • vCenter User ID: The user name for the vCenter admin with full Administrator role privileges.
    • vCenter Password: The password for the vCenter admin with full Administrator role privileges.
  5. Click OK.
    The QoSSIOC Status field displays UP when the plug-in can successfully communicate with the service.
    Note: After you have configured valid QoSSIOC settings for the management node, these settings become the default. The QoSSIOC settings revert to the last known valid QoSSIOC settings until you provide valid QoSSIOC settings for a new management node. You must clear the QoSSIOC settings for the configured management node before setting the QoSSIOC credentials for a new management node.
