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.

Examples

- name: Configure Hostgroup
  netapp_e_hostgroup:
    ssid: "{{ ssid }}"
    api_url: "{{ netapp_api_url }}"
    api_username: "{{ netapp_api_username }}"
    api_password: "{{ netapp_api_password }}"
    validate_certs: "{{ netapp_api_validate_certs }}"
    state: present

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
clusterRef
string
always except when state is absent
The unique identification value for this object. Other objects may use this reference value to refer to the cluster.

Sample:
3233343536373839303132333100000000000000
confirmLUNMappingCreation
boolean
always
If true, indicates that creation of LUN-to-volume mappings should require careful confirmation from the end-user, since such a mapping will alter the volume access rights of other clusters, in addition to this one.

hosts
list
always except when state is absent
A list of the hosts that are part of the host group after all operations.

Sample:
['HostA', 'HostB']
id
string
always except when state is absent
The id number of the hostgroup

Sample:
3233343536373839303132333100000000000000
isSAControlled
boolean
always except when state is absent
If true, indicates that I/O accesses from this cluster are subject to the storage array's default LUN-to-volume mappings. If false, indicates that I/O accesses from the cluster are subject to cluster-specific LUN-to-volume mappings.

label
string
always
The user-assigned, descriptive label string for the cluster.

Sample:
MyHostGroup
name
string
always except when state is absent
same as label

Sample:
MyHostGroup
protectionInformationCapableAccessMethod
boolean
always except when state is absent
This field is true if the host has a PI capable access method.

Sample:
True
