netapp.ontap.na_ontap_partitions – NetApp ONTAP Assign partitions and disks to nodes.

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_partitions.

New in version 21.8.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Assign the specified number of partitions or disks eligible for partitioning to a node.

  • There is some overlap between this module and the na_ontap_disks module.

  • If you don’t have ADP v1 or v2 then you should be using the na_ontap_disks module to assign whole disks.

  • Partitions/disks are added in the following order

    1. Any unassigned partitions are added.

    1. Any unassigned disks of the correct type are added and will be partitioned when added to an aggregate if required.

    1. Any spare partner partitions will be re-assigned.

    1. Any partner spare disks will be re-assigned and be partitioned when added to an aggregate.

  • If you specify a partition_count less than the current number of partitions, then spare partitions will be unassigned.

  • If a previously partitioned disk has the partitions removed, and even if it is “slow zeroed” the system will consider it a shared partitioned disk rather than a spare.

  • In a root-data-data configuration (ADPv2) if you specify data1 as the partition_type then only P1 partitions will be counted.

  • Disk autoassign must be turned off before using this module to prevent the disks being reassigned automatically by the cluster.

  • This can be done through na_ontap_disk_options or via the cli “disk option modify -node <node_name> -autoassign off”.

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;’

Parameters

The type of disk that the partitions that should use.
feature_flags
dictionary
added in 20.5.0 of netapp.ontap
Enable or disable a new feature.
This can be used to enable an experimental feature or disable a new feature that breaks backward compatibility.
Supported keys and values are subject to change without notice. Unknown keys are ignored.
hostname
string / required
The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.
http_port
integer
Override the default port (80 or 443) with this port
https
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enable and disable https.
Ignored when using REST as only https is supported.
Ignored when using SSL certificate authentication as it requires SSL.
key_filepath
string
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
path to SSL client key file.
min_spares
integer
Minimum spares disks or partitions required per type for the node.
node
string / required
Specifies the node that the partitions and disks should be assigned to.
ontapi
integer
The ontap api version to use
partition_count
integer / required
Total number of partitions that should be assigned to the owner.
partition_type
string / required
    Choices:
  • data
  • root
  • data1
  • data2
The type of partiton being assigned either root, data, data1 or data2,
partitioning_method
string / required
    Choices:
  • root_data
  • root_data1_data2
The type of partiton method being used, either root_data or root_data1_data2.
password
string
Password for the specified user.

aliases: pass
use_rest
string
Default:
"auto"
REST API if supported by the target system for all the resources and attributes the module requires. Otherwise will revert to ZAPI.
always -- will always use the REST API
never -- will always use the ZAPI
auto -- will try to use the REST Api
username
string
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/.
Two authentication methods are supported
1. basic authentication, using username and password,
2. SSL certificate authentication, using a ssl client cert file, and optionally a private key file.
To use a certificate, the certificate must have been installed in the ONTAP cluster, and cert authentication must have been enabled.

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

Notes

Note

  • The modules prefixed with na_ontap are built to support the ONTAP storage platform.
