In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration, and then on the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Add Storage Devices.
In the Navigation pane, click Manage Devices, and then click Add Device.
On the Add Storage Devices page, select the Snapshot Array Manager option, and click Next.
On the Add Snapshot Array Manager page, provide the following details.
