Configuration itemDescription
NameName your storage target. This name will identify this target across the system.
TypeSelect NetApp SnapLock
PathSpecify the path where the storage is accessible in the Windows file system (UNC path)
Volume PathSpecify the NetApp specific volume path
Host Name or IP Address

The connection string used by the application to connect to the NetApp SnapLock REST API.

Depending on the version of the NetApp SnapLock system, 7-mode or cluster mode can be configured.

For 7-mode NetApp SnapLock systems:

  • 7-mode system with a connection to the NetApp server: define the FQDN or IP address of the NetApp server without defining the protocol (it will be HTTPS by default)

    Code Block
    languagetext
    netapp_server_address
  • 7-mode system with a connection to the vFiler: define the hostname or IP address of the NetApp vFiler, HTTP protocol must be defined

    Code Block
    languagetext
    http://netapp_vfiler_address
  • 7-mode system with vFiler tunneling to allow HTTPS connections: define the hostname or IP address of the NetApp server and the instance name of the vFiler after a comma (,) or semicolon (;), without defining the protocol (it will be HTTPS by default)

    Code Block
    languagetext
    netapp_server_address;instancename

For cluster mode, further parameters are needed which can be advertised in the Host Name or IP Address field:

  • cluster FQDN or IP address
  • cluster_mode=1, which enables cluster mode in the API
  • vserver=, the name of the vServer hosting the storage folder
  • node=node hosting the vserver

The parameters should be concatenated either with ; or ,

Code Block
languagetext
netapp_server_address;cluster_mode=1,vserver=vserver_name,node=node_name

The parameters can be determined from NetApp console with the following commands:

  • vserver show
  • node show

Example:

The IP address of the server is 10.2.1.13

Code Block
languagetext
verbalabs::> vserver show
Admin Operational Root
Vserver Type Subtype State State Volume Aggregate
test data default running running test_root test_root
verbalabs admin - - - - -
verbalabs-01
node - - - - -

verbalabs::> node show
Node Health Eligibility Uptime Model Owner Location
verbalabs-01 true true 1 days 15:54 SIMBOX

Then hostname fields value is:

Code Block
languagetext
10.2.1.13;cluster_mode=1;vserver=test;node=verbalabs-01
PortThe access port of the NetApp SnapLock REST API (443 by default)
API UserUser name of the API user configured for Verba access in NetApp SnapLock
API PasswordPassword of the API user configured for Verba access in NetApp SnapLock
Use custom credentials for accessing the file share

It is possible to use credentials other than the service user for each NetApp SnapLock storage. Provide the username and password credentials for accessing the storage through SMB.
