If you prefer to use a graphic interface instead of the command-line interface for accessing and managing the cluster, you can do so by using OnCommand System Manager, which is included with Data ONTAP as a web service, enabled by default, and accessible by using a browser.
Before you begin
You must have a cluster user account configured with the admin role and the http, ontapi, and console application types.
- Point the web browser to the cluster management LIF in one of the following formats:
- https://cluster-mgmt-LIF (if using IPv4)
- https://[cluster-mgmt-LIF] (if using IPv6)
is the IP address of the cluster management LIF.
Only HTTPS is supported for browser access of OnCommand System Manager.
If the cluster uses a self-signed digital certificate, the browser might display a warning indicating that the certificate is not trusted. You can either acknowledge the risk to continue the access or install a Certificate Authority (CA) signed digital certificate on the cluster for server authentication.
- Log in to OnCommand System Manager by using your cluster administrator credential.
