SRM: Enable a NetApp OnCommand for 7-mode or Clustered Data ONTAP (including the NetApp AFF series) array

Updated: 9/13/17

Overview

NetApp 7-Mode and Clustered Data ONTAP arrays (including the NetApp AFF series) are monitored via an external NetApp server.

NetApp 7-Mode: If you have many NetApp 7 Mode filers in your environment, using NetApp OnCommand Unified Manager Core can be a convenient way to add them to SRM. NetApp OnCommand Unified Manager Core can discover NetApp 7 mode filers and collect data on the filers it manages. After the NetApp 7 Mode filers are added, you can easily configure SRM to query them directly.

NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP Mode: If you have many NetApp Cluster Mode filers (including the NetApp AFF series) in your environment, using NetApp OnCommand Unified Manager for Clustered Data ONTAP can be a convenient way to add them to SRM. NetApp OnCommand Unified Manager for Clustered Data ONTAP can discover NetApp Cluster Mode filers and collect data on the filers it manages. After the NetApp Cluster Mode filers are added, you can easily configure SRM to query them directly.
