Answer

In order for Virtual Storage Console to discover storage using SVM credentials, the SVM must meet the following conditions:

Then, configure the SVM in VSC:

  • If the storage is already being discovered as a cluster:
    • Select the discovered storage cluster, and then click ACTIONS > Modify.
    • Fill in the SVM login information in the Modify Storage System dialog box.
  • If the storage is not yet discovered by VSC:
    • Add a storage system to VSC by using the VSC home page:
      • Click Storage Systems > Add, or
      • Click Overview > Getting Started, and then click ADD button under Add Storage System.
    • In the Add Storage System dialog box, enter the management IP address and credentials for the SVM.
    • Click OK after you have added all of the required information.
