IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vRealize Automation to communicate with storage devices that use Net App FlexClone technology.

About this task

Note:

You do not have to create endpoints one at a time. You can also create endpoints by importing them from a CSV file.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. Select New Endpoint > Storage > NetApp ONTAP.
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  4. (Optional) : Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Type the URL for the endpoint in the Address text box.

    The URL must be of the type: FQDN or IP_address.

    For example: netapp-1.mycompany.local.

  6. Select the Credentials for the endpoint.

    If you did not already store the credentials, you can do so now.

  7. (Optional) : Add any custom properties.
  8. Click OK.

Results

vRealize Automation can now discover your compute resources.

Important:

Renaming vSphere assets after discovery can cause provisioning to fail.

What to do next

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group.
