You can update Cloud Manager to the latest version or with a patch that NetApp personnel shared with you.
Enabling automatic updates
Cloud Manager can automatically update itself when a new version is available. This ensures that you are running the latest version.
Cloud Manager automatically updates at 12:00 midnight if no operations are running.
In the upper right of the Cloud Manager console, click the Settings icon, and select Cloud Manager Settings.
Select the checkbox under Automatic Cloud Manager Updates and then click Save.
Updating Cloud Manager to the latest version
You should enable automatic updates to Cloud Manager, but you can always do a manual update directly from the web console. Cloud Manager obtains the software update from a NetApp-owned S3 bucket in AWS.
You should have reviewed what is new in the release to identify new requirements and changes in support.
The software update takes a few minutes. Cloud Manager will not be available during the update.
Check whether a new version is available by looking at the lower-right corner of the console:
If a new version is available, click Timeline to determine whether any tasks are in progress.
If any tasks are in progress, wait for them to finish before you proceed to the next step.
In the lower-right of the console, click New version available.
On the Cloud Manager Software Update page, click Update next to the version that you want.
Complete the confirmation dialog box, and then click OK.
Cloud Manager starts the update process. You can log in to the console after a few minutes.
Updating Cloud Manager with a patch
If NetApp shared a patch with you, you can update Cloud Manager with the supplied patch directly from the Cloud Manager web console.
The patch update typically takes a few minutes. Cloud Manager will not be available during the update.
In the upper right of the Cloud Manager console, click the Settings icon, and select Software Update.
Click the link to update Cloud Manager with the supplied patch.
Complete the confirmation dialog box and then click OK.
Select the patch that you were provided.
Cloud Manager applies the patch. You can log in to the console after a few minutes.
