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. Enter the administrative-level user name and password that 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.
