How to setup Netapp E2824 as a openstack cinder block storage back end using tripleO

All,

 

I need help with setting up e2824  as a openstack cinder block storage back end using tripleO. Please see my cinder-netapp-config.yaml below.

 

Q1. What should one use for the filed "CinderNetappServerHostname"? Should it be Openstack controller IPs or Netapp e2834 iscsi port IPs?

 

# A Heat environment file which can be used to enable a
# a Cinder NetApp backend, configured via puppet
resource_registry:
OS::TripleO::Services::CinderBackendNetApp: /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/puppet/services/cinder-backend-netapp.yaml

I don't have a lot of experience with Open Stack or Cinder, but the attached document for Ceph on E-Series might be able to help you.
