Registering pay-as-you-go systems
Support from NetApp is included with Cloud Volumes ONTAP Explore, Standard, and Premium systems, but you must first activate support by registering the systems with NetApp.
Registering a PAYGO system with NetApp is required to upgrade ONTAP software using any of the methods described on this page.
|A system that isn’t registered for support will still receive the software update notifications that appear in Cloud Manager when a new version is available. But you will need to register the system before you can upgrade the software.|
If you have not yet added your NetApp Support Site account to Cloud Manager, go to Account Settings and add it now.
On the Canvas page, double-click the name of the system that you want to register.
Click the menu icon and then click Support registration:
Select a NetApp Support Site account and click Register.
Cloud Manager registers the system with NetApp.
