NetApp: enabling features with System Manager

How do you enable FC or iSCSI features in NetApp with System Manager?


I was trying to find out why I could not create a FC Volume on my newly setup NetApp. The only option was NFS. I checked the Protocols section in tree, and it was only showing NFS and CIFS.

To show the other protocols, do this:

1.       Go to the System Tools à Licenses section.

2.       Click on the FC/FCoE line.

3.       Click Enable link at the bar. Wait for a few seconds, and it will be enabled.

4.       Do the same for the iSCSI line.

As you can see from the picture below, I now have FC/FCoE and iSCSI under the Protocols section.
