Add the storage cluster or SVM to VSC for VMware vSphere

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold

Before you can provision the first datastore to an ESXi host in your Datacenter, you must add the cluster or a specific storage virtual machine (SVM) to Virtual Storage Console for VMware vSphere. Adding the cluster enables you to provision storage on any SVM in the cluster.

Before you begin

You must have administrator credentials for the storage cluster or the SVM that is being added.

About this task

Depending on your configuration, the cluster might have been discovered automatically, or might have already been added.

Steps
  1. Log in to the vSphere Web Client.

  2. Select Virtual Storage Console.

  3. Select Storage Systems and then click the Add icon.

  4. In the Add Storage System dialog box, enter the host name and administrator credentials for the storage cluster or SVM and then click OK.
