How to add a new storage under "view" and "Global"?

I have added a new filer into NetApp Management Console. However, if I click "management performance", then "view", the filer is not under "Global". I can see others. How to add the new one here?

Hi there,

I did that, and that was successful. I don't have an issue with adding the host.

The issue is, if i click "manage performance", the new host won't show up in any groups there.

I can add it in groups in Operational Manager. But, still won't show up under groups under "view" on the left pane in NetApp Management Console.

Have you verified that the PerfAdv and XML tests pass in the "dfm host diag HOST" output?

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi kryan,

it failed on the following, the others seem "passed". What should I do then, it is related to this error?

perfAdvisorTransport   Failed (perfAdvisorTransport set to httpOnly, but host us

es https)

Re: How to add a new storage under "view" and "Global"?

I'm sure there's a quick and easy dfm CLI command for it, but I don't know what it is.  You can go to Operations Manager, Setup, Options, Performance Advisor, and make sure Performance Advisor is enabled and the transport is httpsok.

Hi resqme914,

I did the same as you adviced, P.A is enabled and treansport is httpsok, and logout Management Console, log back in. Still the same...

Give it some time and it will eventually work fine.  Go to Manage Performance... Setup... Hosts...  and you will probably see it has a red dot.  Give it some time and it will eventually turn green.

Re: How to add a new storage under "view" and "Global"?

If you look on the Performance Advisor/ Setup / Storage System you will the filers that dont show up is red.

What I did was:

On the filer

options httpd.admin.enable on

options httpd.admin.ssl.enable on

Also on the dfm server:

dfm host set <host-name> perfAdvisorTransport=httpsOk

or you can do this in Operations Manager under options / Performance...

Then press F5 in the view that you are missing the filers....

I logged in NetApp Management console today, and 4 new added filers are still not there.

So on only ONE of 4 new filers, I did:

options httpd.admin.enable on

options httpd.admin.ssl.enable on

Other items suggested by Roger Bergling have already done.

THEN LOGOUT Management Console, then log back in. Now, all 4 new filers show up under "Global".

I just don't know why it works, since I only did that two options commands on one filer, and why all the suddent all 4 filers come up.
