Netapp Zero Touch Provisioning

We are trying to setup zero touch provisiong for Netapp CDOT systems.

Does Netapp support any option to boot OnTap non-interactively, (may be using netboot) and configure interfaces, user account, and cluster ?



Re: Netapp Zero Touch Provisioning

No - that functionality is not available.


Storage systems operate across a continum of time, serving out data stored over time, managed and converted through a known set of tasks, not at a point in time, so the switch paragdim where ZTP is common doesn't really follow.


There is netboot functionality (requiring a specific image), but it is for restoring systems with failed and/or replaced boot devices. Even factory configuration is performed by serial port connected automation of scripted commands. If you have enough systems, that may be worthwhile investigating.

Thank you for the response, AlexDawson.


We have close to 50 Netapp storages that needs to be configured.
