Configure NetApp Data ONTAP 7 and 8 in 7-mode for Monitoring

To configure NetApp filer appliances for monitoring, perform the following procedures:

Prerequisites

NOTE: CIFS must be set up on your NetApp filer in advance.

The instructions in this section apply to the default VFiler. To audit several VFiler instances, you must perform these configuration steps for each of them.

NOTE: Currently, Netwrix Auditor can be configured to audit non-default VFiler using HTTP only.

The following commands are used:

  • To get an option value:

    options <option_name>

  • To set option value:

    options <option_name> <option_value>

Configure Qtree Security

  1. Navigate to the NetApp filer command prompt through the SSH/Telnet connection (depending on your NetApp filer settings), or via OnCommand System Manager.

  2. Set the volume where the audited file shares are located to the "ntfs" or "mixed" security style:

    apphost01> qtree status
    Volume Tree Style Oplocks Status
    ------- ------ ---- ------ --------
    vol0   ntfs enabled normal
    vol0 test ntfs enabled normal
    vol1   unix enabled normal
    Vol2   ntfs enabled normal
    apphost01>

Configure Admin Web Access

Netwrix Auditor uses the NetApp API to obtain the current CIFS audit configuration and force the audit data flush from the internal filer format to an Event Viewer compatible format. Netwrix Auditor supports both the SSL and non-SSL HTTP access, trying HTTPS first, and falling back to HTTP if it is unavailable.

  1. Navigate to the NetApp filer command prompt through the SSH/Telnet connection (depending on your NetApp filer settings), or via OnCommand System Manager.

  2. Make sure that the httpd.admin.enable or httpd.admin.ssl.enable option is set to "on". For security reasons, it is recommended to configure SSL access and enable the httpd.admin.ssl.enable option.

    apphost01> options httpd.admin
    httpd.admin.access legacy
    httpd.admin.enable off
    httpd.admin.hostsequiv.enable off
    httpd.admin.max_connections 512
    httpd.admin.ssl.enable on
    httpd.admin.top-page.authentication on
    apphost01>
