The NetApp Element Configuration extension point enables you to add and manage clusters, assign storage clusters to vCenter Servers for Linked Mode, and configure management node settings for QoSSIOC.

Note Using NetApp Element Plug-in for VMware vCenter Server to manage cluster resources from other vCenter Servers using vCenter Linked Mode is limited to local storage clusters only.
Note Your vSphere Web Client might differ slightly from what is shown in the following image depending on the version of vSphere installed.
