Full Integration of OnCommand Unified Manager and Performance Manager

NetApp has recently released a “full integration” of the two core Clustered Data ONTAP monitoring products, OnCommand Unified Manager (vsphere version link) and OnCommand Performance Manager (vsphere version link).

ocumWhat does this mean?

Historically, when using these two products, you would need to setup each individually and mange each individually. With the “full integration” release, you still perform a basic setup on both. If using HTTPS Certificates generated by your own Certificate Authority, generate the signing requests, get and install the certificates and then, following the documentation, configure the “full integration” on the maintenance console of the performance manager. After a few minutes, you are presented with an updated single management pane through the OnCommand Unified Manger. Nearly all configuration options that apply to one, will apply to the other as needed. In fact, the GUI to OnCommand Performance Manager is now gone as a stand alone product (hitting the OCPM IP address with a browser no longer works) when full integration is used.

Partial Integration is what the application used in prior releases and is still a viable option. The preferred method moving forward is the Full Integration.
