netapp.ontap.na_ontap_nvme_subsystem – NetApp ONTAP Manage NVME Subsystem

Note

This plugin is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.14.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install netapp.ontap.

To use it in a playbook, specify: netapp.ontap.na_ontap_nvme_subsystem.

New in version 2.8.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Create/Delete NVME subsystem

  • Associate(modify) host/map to NVME subsystem

  • NVMe service should be existing in the data vserver with NVMe protocol as a pre-requisite

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9

  • Python3 netapp-lib (2018.11.13) or later. Install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’

  • netapp-lib 2020.3.12 is strongly recommended as it provides better error reporting for connection issues.

  • A physical or virtual clustered Data ONTAP system. The modules support Data ONTAP 9.1 and onward.

  • REST support requires ONTAP 9.6 or later.

  • To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’
