ONTAP 9.14

to Japanese version

Manage nodes using ONTAP System Manager

Using ONTAP System Manager, you can add nodes to a cluster and rename them. You can also reboot, take over, and give back nodes.

Add nodes to a cluster

You can increase the size and capabilities of your cluster by adding new nodes.

Before you Start

You should have already cabled the new nodes to the cluster.

About this task

There are separate processes for working with ONTAP System Manager in ONTAP 9.7 or ONTAP 9.8 and later.

ONTAP 9.8 and later procedure

Adding nodes to a cluster with ONTAP System Manager (ONTAP 9.8 and later)

    The new controllers are shown as nodes connected to the cluster network but are not in the cluster.

  2. Select Add.

    • The nodes are added into the cluster.

    • Storage is allocated implicitly.
