|Name||Name your storage target. This name will identify this target across the system.|
|Type||Select NetApp SnapLock|
|Path||Specify the path where the storage is accessible in the Windows file system (UNC path)|
|Volume Path||Specify the NetApp specific volume path|
|Host Name or IP Address|
The connection string used by the application to connect to the NetApp SnapLock REST Data ONTAP API.
Depending on the version of the NetApp SnapLock system, 7-mode or cluster mode can be configured.
For 7-mode NetApp SnapLock systems:
For cluster mode, further parameters are needed which can be advertised in the Host Name or IP Address field:
The parameters should be concatenated either with ; or ,
The parameters can be determined from NetApp console with the following commands:
The IP address of the server is 10.2.1.13
Then hostname field value is:
|Port||The access port of the NetApp SnapLock REST Data ONTAP API (443 by default)|
|API User||User name of the API user configured for Verba access in NetApp SnapLock|
|API Password||Password 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.
After this point, the Storage target is available for use by other Verba components (e.g. Data management policies).
Configuring SSL certificates for the SnapLock
Data ONTAP API connection
NetApp SnapLock can be configured to accept SSL connections from trusted sources only. You can configure the trusted and signed certificates used by the Verba system on the servers directly. If you intend to use multiple NetApp SnapLock systems for Verba, you need to use the same certificates for all, because it is a server-side setting in the Verba system. By default, Verba uses its own self-signed certificates for the SSL connection.
