Add a connection to the cloud

Starting with ONTAP 9.9.0, you can use System Manager to add a connection to the cloud.

You start by using NetApp Cloud Insights to configure a collector. During the configuration process, you copy a pairing code that is generated by Cloud Insights, and then you log on to a cluster using System Manager. There, you add a cloud connection using that pairing code. The rest of the process is completed in Cloud Insights.

Steps
  1. In Cloud Insights, during the process to configure a collector, copy the generated pairing code.

  2. Using System Manager 9.9.0 or later, log on to the cluster.

  3. Go to Cluster > Settings.

  4. In the Cloud Connections section, select Add to add a connection.

  5. Enter a name for the connection, and paste the pairing code in the space provided.

  6. Click Add.

  7. Return to Cloud Insights to complete the configuration of the collector.
