Introduction

NetApp Filers are high-performance, mission critical products used by large enterprises and service providers.

OpsRamp manages NetApp Filer using SNMP and NetApp API.

Prerequisites

The Transport Layer Security (TLS) must be enabled on the NetApp Cluster.

To check the TLS status:

  1. SSH to the resource: SSH username@hostname. For example: root@1.1.1.1.
  2. Enter the command: system services web show.
  3. If TLS is not enabled, change the status. For example: tls.enable on

Example output:

External Web Services: true
               Status: online
   HTTP Protocol Port: 80
  HTTPS Protocol Port: 443
        TLSv1 Enabled: true
        SSLv3 Enabled: true
        SSLv2 Enabled: true

OpsRamp configuration

Configuration involves:

  1. Creating credentials.
  2. Configuring the integration.
  3. Adding a discovery profile.

Step 1: Create a credential

To create credentials:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Accounts > Clients.
  3. On the client’s Credentials tab, add the credential information.

The following describes some of the credential settings:

  • Type: NetApp
  • Use Password Vault: If enabled, specify Policy Mapping, otherwise, specify a password.
    • Policy mapping enables integration of a Password Manager application with credentials.
    • Password is the authentication password to access a resource.
  • Port:
    • For HTTP* communication, use 80.
    • For HTTPS communication, select Is Secure and use 443.

Step 2: Configure the integration

To integrate:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Integrations > Integrations.
  3. From Available Integrations, select Storage > NetApp Filer and click Install.
  4. Provide the following:
    • Name
    • IP address
    • Credentials. Select an existing credential or create a new credential.
  5. Click Save.

Step 3: Add a discovery profile

To add a discovery profile:

  1. From the integration, click Add.
  2. Provide the following information:
    • Profile details.
      • Profile name
      • Select profile
      • IP address
    • Filter criteria
      • Smart filters: Use to filter resources based on the resource type.
      • Resource filters: Use to filter resources based on certain resource attributes.
    • Perform actions: Manage Device
    • Discovery schedule. Based on the settings, discovery is triggered based on the scheduled time. New resources added to the environment are automatically discovered.
  3. Click Save.
  4. From the Discovery Profiles section, click Scan Now for the associated profile.

What to do next

After a discovery profile is created, you can do the following:

  • View the integration: Go to Infrastructure > Storage.
  • Assign monitoring templates to the resource.
  • Validate that the resource was successfully added to OpsRamp.
