IaaS administrators create endpoints to allow vCloud Automation Center to communicate with storage devices that use Net App FlexClone technology.

Note

You do not have to create endpoints one at a time. You can also create endpoints by importing them from a list. .

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as an IaaS administrator.

Select New Endpoint > Storage > NetApp ONTAP.

3

Enter a name in the Name text box.

4

(Optional) Enter a description in the Description text box.

Type 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

Select the Credentials for the endpoint.

If you did not already store the credentials, you can do so now.
