Getting Started with the NetApp Storage Array

To set up the NetApp storage array, review system requirements, and then add the array in the Commvault software. Then you can modify the snapshot properties. 

Step 1: Review Requirements

Review the following information to learn more about the system requirements.

Step 2: Configure Your Environment

Configure the environment for OnCommand Unified Manager (OCUM) or Active IQ Unified Manager and for clustered Data ONTAP.

  1. If you are going to use OCUM or Active IQ Unified Manager, see OnCommand Unified Manager.
  2. If you are going to use clustered Data ONTAP, see ONTAP Peers.

Step 3: Add and Configure the Storage Array in the Commvault Software

  1. If you want to use the SnapVault copy or the SnapMirror copy, then do the following:
    1. Create a storage policy for the Snapvault copy or the SnapMirror copy. See Creating a Storage Policy for SnapVault or SnapMirror.
    2. Create a snapshot copy for the SnapVault copy or the SnapMirror copy. See Creating a Snapshot Copy for SnapVault or SnapMirror.
  2. Add NetApp storage array in Array Management. See Configuring the NetApp Array Using Array Management.
  3. To customize the array to your environment, edit the Snap Configuration Properties of NetApp.
  4. For storage virtual machines, you can configure tunneling using the detect and add option on the NetApp cluster NAS client. See Configure a Storage Virtual Machine on the NetApp Storage Array.

Step 4: What to Do Next

Choose one of the supported agents to work with the NetApp storage array. For more information, see Supported Agents.
