Is SSH a supported management protocol for E-Series devices?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • NetApp E-Series platforms (E5600, E6600, E2700, E2800)
  • SANtricity 11.30 and above
  • SANtricity OS 08.30 and above
  • NetApp StorageGRID appliance storage controller


SSH is not a supported management protocol for E-Series devices. To manage the storage array, there is SANtricity for GUI based management or SMcli for the command line.

For support procedures, occasional Telnet or SSH access is required. However, it is not possible to use Telnet/SSH for day-to-day operations.
