How Active IQ Digital Advisor works with Cloud Manager

The Active IQ Digital Advisor user interface is completely integrated in Cloud Manager.

  • If you haven’t registered an NSS account in Cloud Manager, register an NSS account now and then the Active IQ Digital Advisor UI appears.

Note As of December 2021, NetApp has switched to a new methodology of registering credentials for NSS accounts. See this FAQ for details. If your NSS account uses the old set of credentials you will need to update the account to the new credentials.
