Install trident for EKS cluster with backend volume on cloud ontap

Getting error while trying to install trident with backend volume as ontap cloud(AWS). 

Steps

- Create a volume on ontap-cloud cluster

- added info to setup/backend.json

- executed installer's dry run

 

Error

ATA Install failed; could not start the storage backend driver; 
problem initializing storage driver 'ontap-nas':
error initializing ontap-nas driver: could not create Data ONTAP API client:
error reading SVM details: API status: failed, Reason: Specified vserver not found, Code: 15698.

My backend.json looks like this

 

{
    "version": 1,
    "storageDriverName": "ontap-nas",
    "backendName": "trident_ontap_vol",#gave a unique name
    "managementLIF": "x.x.x.x",# cluster management ip
    "dataLIF": "x.x.x.x",#data node ip which is the same as the mount ip for volume
    "svm": "trident_svm", # left the default, what should be the value here?
    "username": "xxxx",
    "password": "xxxx"
}
