SnapDrive for UNIX must ensure that the guest is ready to communicate with the storage system.

Ensure that the Backup and Recovery capability of NetApp Virtual Storage Console for VMware vSphere is installed in the Windows system and registered with the vCenter.

NetApp Virtual Storage Console configuration is required only for RDM FC LUNs.

Steps
  1. Enter the following command:

    snapdrive config set -viadmin user viadmin_name

    After the command is complete, you can confirm that the guest can communicate to the storage system by running the snapdrive storage show -all command.
