Register for NetApp Resource Provider

To use the Azure NetApp Files service, you need to register the NetApp Resource Provider.

  1. From the Azure portal, click the Azure Cloud Shell icon on the upper right-hand corner:

    Azure Cloud Shell icon

  2. If you have multiple subscriptions on your Azure account, select the one that has been approved for Azure NetApp Files:

    az account set --subscription <subscriptionId>
    
  3. In the Azure Cloud Shell console, enter the following command to verify that your subscription has been approved:

    az feature list | grep NetApp
    

    The command output appears as follows:

    "id": "/subscriptions/<SubID>/providers/Microsoft.Features/providers/Microsoft.NetApp/features/ANFGA",  
    "name": "Microsoft.NetApp/ANFGA" 
    

    <SubID> is your subscription ID.

  4. In the Azure Cloud Shell console, enter the following command to register the Azure Resource Provider:

    az provider register --namespace Microsoft.NetApp --wait
    

    The --wait parameter instructs the console to wait for the registration to complete. The registration process can take some time to complete.

  5. In the Azure Cloud Shell console, enter the following command to verify that the Azure Resource Provider has been registered:

    az provider show --namespace Microsoft.NetApp
    

    The command output appears as follows:

    {
     "id": "/subscriptions/<SubID>/providers/Microsoft.NetApp",
     "namespace": "Microsoft.NetApp", 
     "registrationState": "Registered", 
     "resourceTypes": […. 
    

    <SubID> is your subscription ID. The state parameter value indicates Registered.

  6. From the Azure portal, click the Subscriptions blade.

  7. In the Subscriptions blade, click your subscription ID.

  8. In the settings of the subscription, click Resource providers to verify that Microsoft.NetApp Provider indicates the Registered status:
