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



  1. Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.
  2. Select New > Storage > NetApp ONTAP.
  3. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  4. (Optional) : Enter a description in the Description text box.
  5. Enter 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. Click Credentials and select the administrative-level credentials you stored for this endpoint.

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

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


vRealize Automation collects data from your endpoint and discovers your compute resources.

What to do next

Add the compute resources from your endpoint to a fabric group. See Create a Fabric Group.
