netapp_e_facts – NetApp E-Series retrieve facts about NetApp E-Series storage arrays

Synopsis

  • The netapp_e_facts module returns a collection of facts regarding NetApp E-Series storage arrays.
  • When contacting a storage array directly the collection includes details about the array, controllers, management interfaces, hostside interfaces, driveside interfaces, disks, storage pools, volumes, snapshots, and features.
  • When contacting a web services proxy the collection will include basic information regarding the storage systems that are under its management.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_password
string / required
The password to authenticate with the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
api_url
string / required
The url to the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API. Example https://prod-1.wahoo.acme.com/devmgr/v2
api_username
string / required
The username to authenticate with the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
ssid
string
Default:
1
The ID of the array to manage. This value must be unique for each array.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Should https certificates be validated?

Notes

Note

  • The E-Series Ansible modules require either an instance of the Web Services Proxy (WSP), to be available to manage the storage-system, or an E-Series storage-system that supports the Embedded Web Services API.
  • Embedded Web Services is currently available on the E2800, E5700, EF570, and newer hardware models.
  • netapp_e_storage_system may be utilized for configuring the systems managed by a WSP instance.
