After the installation is complete, you must configure additional features and functions. You must install the server certificate and configure SnapDrive for UNIX to use a secure connection with the storage system and daemon service.

Steps
  1. Install the server certificate that is used by SnapDrive for UNIX in the sdu-daemoncertificate-path=/opt/NetApp/snapdrive/snapdrive.pem location if you are using a secure connection with the storage system and daemon service.

    The certificate path is defined in the sdu-daemoncertificate-path configuration variable in the s`napdrive.conf` file.

  2. Set use-https-to-sdu-daemon=on in the snapdrive.conf file to use HTTPS for a secure connection with the storage system and daemon service.

    SnapDrive 5.0 for UNIX and later versions support HTTPS for daemon communication. By default, this optional parameter is disabled.
  3. Restart the SnapDrive daemon service:

    snapdrived start

    You must restart the SnapDrive daemon every time you manually change the configuration file.
