  2. Select the checkbox under Automatic Cloud Manager Updates and then click Save.

Updating Cloud Manager to the latest version

You should enable automatic updates to Cloud Manager, but you can always do a manual update directly from the web console. Cloud Manager obtains the software update from a NetApp-owned S3 bucket in AWS.

Before you begin

You should have reviewed what is new in the release to identify new requirements and changes in support.
