LibstorageMgmt ontap plugin allows user to manage NetApp ONTAP storage arrays. The 'ontap_lsmplugin' executable file is for libStorageMgmt daemon to execute when client specifies ontap plugin in the URI

This plugin requires NetApp ONTAP storage array to enable these options:

   options httpd.enable on
   options httpd.admin.enable on

These options are required for HTTPS connection:

   options httpd.admin.ssl.enable on
   options tls.enable on


To use this plugin, users should set their URI to this format:

    # HTTP connection

    # HTTPS connection

    # HTTPS connection with certificate file

The username is the user account with administration privilege.


The ontap_filer_ip is the NetApp ONTAP filer IP address or DNS name.
