Installing your Performance Manager software

The installation process contains three steps: downloading the virtual appliance (VA) installation file, deploying the VA, and performing the initial configuration. You download the VA as an OVA installation file from the NetApp Support Site. You need a customer account to access the site.

You also must be familiar with the operations of the VMware vSphere Client to deploy the OVA installation file that creates the virtual machine (VM). After the initial configuration using the vSphere Client, you can copy the IP address for your new VM into a supported browser and then start using the software to monitor your storage systems.
