NetApp SMI-S Provider

Specify the ONTAPI timeout value


SMI-S Provider makes ONTAP API (ONTAPI) calls to storage systems. By default, the ONTAPI timeout is 300 seconds. You can set the timeout to a value from 60 to 300 seconds.

Before you begin
  • You must already have login credentials as Administrator.

  • You must already have logged in to the host system as Administrator.

  1. Create a system or user environment variable named ONTAPI_TIMEOUT_SEC with the new timeout value (in seconds).

    For information about creating environment variables, see your Windows documentation.
