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

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. Select New Endpoint > Storage > NetApp ONTAP.
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.

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

  7. (Optional) : Add custom properties.
