New in version 2.6.

Synopsis

  • Create, modify or delete svm on NetApp ONTAP

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • A physical or virtual clustered Data ONTAP system. The modules were developed with Clustered Data ONTAP 9.3
  • Ansible 2.6
  • netapp-lib (2017.10.30). Install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’
  • To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggr_list
List of aggregates assigned for volume operations.
These aggregates could be shared for use with other Vservers.
When specified as part of a vserver-create, this field represents the list of aggregates that are assigned to the Vserver for volume operations.
When part of vserver-get-iter call, this will return the list of Vservers which have any of the aggregates specified as part of the aggr-list.
allowed_protocols
Allowed Protocols.
When specified as part of a vserver-create, this field represent the list of protocols allowed on the Vserver.
When part of vserver-get-iter call, this will return the list of Vservers which have any of the protocols specified as part of the allowed-protocols.
When part of vserver-modify, this field should include the existing list along with new protocol list to be added to prevent data disruptions.
Possible values
nfs NFS protocol,
cifs CIFS protocol,
fcp FCP protocol,
iscsi iSCSI protocol,
ndmp NDMP protocol,
http HTTP protocol,
nvme NVMe protocol
from_name
(added in 2.7)
Name of the SVM to be renamed
hostname
required
The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.
http_port
int
Override the default port (80 or 443) with this port

name
required
The name of the SVM to manage.
password
required
Password for the specified user.

aliases: pass
root_volume
Root volume of the SVM.
Cannot be modified after creation.
root_volume_aggregate
The aggregate on which the root volume will be created.
Cannot be modified after creation.
root_volume_security_style
    Choices:
  • unix
  • ntfs
  • mixed
  • unified
Security Style of the root volume.
When specified as part of the vserver-create, this field represents the security style for the Vserver root volume.
When specified as part of vserver-get-iter call, this will return the list of matching Vservers.
The 'unified' security style, which applies only to Infinite Volumes, cannot be applied to a Vserver's root volume.
Cannot be modified after creation.
snapshot_policy
(added in 2.7)
Default snapshot policy setting for all volumes of the Vserver. This policy will be assigned to all volumes created in this Vserver unless the volume create request explicitly provides a snapshot policy or volume is modified later with a specific snapshot policy. A volume-level snapshot policy always overrides the default Vserver-wide snapshot policy.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the specified SVM should exist or not.
subtype
(added in 2.7)
    Choices:
  • default
  • dp_destination
  • sync_source
  • sync_destination
The subtype for vserver to be created.
Cannot be modified after creation.
username
required
This can be a Cluster-scoped or SVM-scoped account, depending on whether a Cluster-level or SVM-level API is required. For more information, please read the documentation https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/nmsdk/9.4/.

aliases: user
validate_certs
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If set to False, the SSL certificates will not be validated.
This should only set to False used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.
