After the installation is complete, you must perform a few tasks to ensure that SnapDrive for UNIX is installed successfully.
- Verify that the installation program has installed all the necessary files on your host.
- Confirm that the configuration variables in the snapdrive.conf file have the correct settings.
For the majority of these variables, the default values should be applicable.
- Supply SnapDrive for UNIX with the current storage system login information.
When you set up your storage system, you supplied a user login for it. SnapDrive for UNIX needs this login information to work with the storage system.
- To use role-based access control (RBAC), set the rbac-method=dfm variable in the snapdrive.conf file.
By default, SnapDrive 4.0 for UNIX and later accesses the storage systems using the root credentials. The RBAC functionality is not turned on.
- To use HTTPS for a secure connection with the storage system and daemon service, set the use-https-to-sdu-daemon=on in the snapdrive.conf file.
Note: SnapDrive 5.0 for UNIX and later versions support HTTPS for daemon communication. By default, the option is set to off.
- Install the server certificate that is used by SnapDrive for UNIX in the
sdu-daemon-certificate-path=/opt/NetApp/snapdrive/snapdrive.pem path as specified in the snapdrive.conf file.
- Change the default password for the SnapDrive for UNIX daemon service by running the following command: snapdrived passwd
