  2. From the <Select Software> drop-down list, choose Virtual Storage Console (VMware vSphere).
  3. Enter 5.0P1 in the version box and click “Go.”

Virtual Storage Console for VMware vSphere software is a single vCenter Server plug-in that enables you to manage complete virtual machine end-to-end lifecycles in VMware environments using NetApp storage systems.
VSC integrates smoothly with the VMware vSphere Web Client and enables you to use single sign- on (SSO) services. In addition, the VSC Summary page enables you to quickly check the overall status of your vSphere environment.
By running VSC, you can perform tasks such as the following:

  • Manage storage and configure the ESX host
  • Create storage capability profiles and set alarms
  • Provision datastores and clone virtual machines
  • Perform online alignments and migrate virtual machines individually and in groups into new or existing datastores
  • Back up and restore virtual machines and datastores
