Contributors netapp-mwallis akseldavis Download PDF of this page

If you obtained the NetApp ConfigBuilder profile output for your installation, you can import it during the NetApp HCI installation process to automatically fill out the fields in the NetApp Deployment Engine. This is an optional step.

About this task

If you import an installation profile, you still need to enter credentials for NetApp HCI to use on the Credentials page of the NetApp Deployment Engine.

If fields in the installation profile are left blank or entered incorrectly, you might need to manually enter or correct the information in the NetApp Deployment Engine pages. If you need to add or correct information, ensure that you update the information in your records and the installation profile.
