smis add

Contributors

The smis add command adds a storage system with an HTTP connection to your configuration to enable you to manage and monitor the device. Unless is it necessary, you should use smis addsecure instead of smis add.

Syntax

smis add

storage_sys storage_sys_user
[-t {http | https}]

Note

Operating systems using languages other than U.S. English cannot use the add command.

Location

C:\Program Files (x86)\NetApp\smis\pegasus\bin

Privilege level

Administrator (Windows)

Parameters
  • storage_sys

    Name or IP address of the storage system that you are adding

    If you are specifying the IP address, you can use IPv4 or IPv6. Both compressed and full IPv6 addressees are supported, for example 1001:0002:0000:0000:0000:0000:0003:0004 or 1001:2::3:4.

  • storage_sys_user

    User name of the administrator who manages the storage system that you are adding

  • storage_sys_pwd

    Optional: password of the administrator who manages the storage system that you are adding

    As a best practice, do not use this parameter for security reasons. This parameter is provided only for automation and backward compatibility.

  • [-t {http | https}]

    Protocol to be used: HTTPS (default) or HTTP

Storage system-agent and agent-client protocol

The smis add and smis addsecure commands determine the protocol used between the storage system and the provider. The [-t {http | https}] parameter determines the protocol used between the provider and the client.

The smis addsecure command and the [-t {https}] parameter connects using SSL encryption, and unencrypted traffic is not allowed. The smis add command and the [-t {http}] parameter connects without using SSL encryption, and unencrypted traffic is allowed.

You should consider your environment’s security needs before disabling SSL-encrypted connections.

Example

Add a storage system using IPv4 with an IP address of 10.32.1.4 over HTTP:

smis add 10.32.1.4 user2

A confirmation message appears that the storage system was successfully added. If an error occurred, an error message appears.

Example

Add a storage system using IPv6 over HTTP:

smis add 1001:0002:0000:0000:0000:0000:0003:0004 user2
smis add 1001:2::3:4 user2

A confirmation message appears that the storage system was successfully added. If an error occurred, an error message appears.

Example

Add a storage system with an IP address of 10.32.1.4 over HTTP on a non-English-language system:

cimcli -n root/ontap ci ontap_filerdata hostname="10.32.1.4" username="vsadmin" password="PasSw0Rd" port=80 comMechanism="HTTP" --timeout 180
