Getting Started with the NetApp Storage Array

Step 1: Review Requirements and Supported Agents

Refer to the following information to learn more about the requirements for NetApp storage array and supported agents:

Step 2: Configure your Environment

Run scripts and configure the array in the array console before configuring the array on Commvault:
  1. If you plan to use OnCommand Unified Manager (OCUM), ensure that you have set the environment for OnCommand Unified Manager.
  2. If you plan to use clustered Data ONTAP, ensure that you have the necessary configuration for Clustered Data ONTAP.

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

  1. If you plan to use SnapVault or SnapMirror, create a storage policy for SnapVault or SnapMirror, and then create a snapshot copy for SnapVault or SnapMirror.
  2. On Commvault software, add and configure the NetApp storage array in IntelliSnap Array Management. See Setting Up 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.

NetApp storage array is now ready to operate.
