In this post we add a data source (from which WFA will gather information about the Clustered ONTAP environment) and targets (to which WFA can perform actions.)

1) Add Database User to OnCommand Unified Manager 6.1

1.1) Login to the OCUM user interface at https://{NAME/IP_of_OCUM}
1.2) Navigate to Administration > Manage Users in the top right

If all is good, the Data Source Status column should show Completed (after acquiring data.) There is an ‘Acquire Now’ button to force this.

And repeat for all Clusters to be added.
