Effective December 3, NetApp adopts Microsoft’s Business-to-Customer (B2C) identity management to simplify and provide secure access to NetApp resources.
For accounts that did not pre-register (prior to Dec 3), access to your NetApp data may take up to 1 hour as your legacy NSS ID is synchronized to the new B2C identity.

communication or authentication style as HTTPS for Cluster mode NetApp 8.2


I want to set the communication or authentication style as HTTPS for Cluster mode NetApp 8.2.


I can see a API na_server_style may be this can be used to achieve authentication style as HTTPS.


Does anybody have a sample code for using na_server_style to set  authentication style as HTTPS or let me know if any other ways are available.




Anshul -


You set the communication to https, then the auth to user:password.


See the code for the  'apitest' utility in the source directories of the SDK - it's excellent sample code to get started with.

There's versions of it in Perl, Java, etc ...
