The Edit Remote System Type dialog box enables you to modify the name, description, version, protocol, default port, and default timeout of an existing remote system type. You cannot modify a NetApp-certified remote system type.
Enables you to edit the details of the remote system type, such as the name, description, version, and connection protocol.
The connection primarily uses HTTPS. If connection through HTTPS fails, HTTP is used. If connection through HTTP also fails, the connection attempt is dropped.
When you select a connection protocol, the protocol, default port, and default timeout (sec) fields are populated with data.
Enables you to provide a validation script to test the connectivity of the remote system. The validation script must be written in Perl and must include the following function: checkCredentials($host, $user, $password, $protocol, $port, $timeout). During validation, WFA calls the checkCredentials function with the values that are configured for the remote system type and the connection protocol. The function returns the value "1" on successful validation of connectivity or "0" on failure of connection validation.
You can click Test Perl Script to run the script for testing the connectivity.
