Enabling your NetApp filers for NetApp System Manager

By tom on June 29th, 2009

NetApp System Manager is a Microsoft Management Console based snap-in to manage your NetApp/IBM filers. It gives a great overview of your filers, including the partner setup.
It can also be used to setup new filers.

In order to connect to your filers, you have to enable (or setup) ssl.

These are the steps to get to this:

  • Connect with an ssh client like putty or so to your filer
  • Type secureadmin setup ssl
  • Answer all questions to create an ssl certificate
  • That’s all! Start up your System Manager, connect to the filer and type in username/password.
