Synopsis

  • This Ansible module provides the interface to manage syslog servers through ‘mksyslogserver’, ‘chsyslogserver’ and ‘rmsyslogserver’ Storage Virtualize commands.

  • The Policy based High Availability (HA) solution uses Storage Partitions. These partitions contain volumes, volume groups, host and host-to-volume mappings.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

clustername

string / required

The hostname or management IP of the Storage Virtualize system.

deletenonpreferredmanagementobjects

boolean

If the storage partition has a replication policy and associated objects, such as volumes, volumes groups, hosts or host mappings, one of the two deletenonpreferredmanagementobjects or deletepreferredmanagementobjects parmeters is required. If specified, the command is only permitted on the active management system, and requires that the active management system is the same as the preferred management system.

Applies when state=absent.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

deletepreferredmanagementcopy

boolean

This parameter is to be used along with noreplicationpolicy parameter and active management system must NOT be the same as the preferred management system.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

deletepreferredmanagementobjects

boolean

If the storage partition has a replication policy and associated objects, such as volumes, volumes groups, hosts or host mappings, one of the two deletenonpreferredmanagementobjects or deletepreferredmanagementobjects parmeters is required. If the storage partition cannot be managed at the preferred management system then deletepreferredmanagementobjects to be used to remove the storage partition and unassign the replication policy.

Applies when state=absent.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

domain

string

Domain for the Storage Virtualize system.

Valid when hostname is used for the parameter clustername.

log_path

string

Path of debug log file.

name

string / required

Specifies the name of a storage partition.

noreplicationpolicy

boolean

Unassigns the current replication policy from the volume group. This parameter, if used without deletepreferredmanagementcopy parameter, is allowed only on active management system.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

password

string

REST API password for the Storage Virtualize system.

The parameters username and password are required if not using token to authenticate a user.

preferredmanagementsystem

string

Changes the preferred management system for the storage partition.

Permitted only from the system which is the active management system.

replicationpolicy

string

Specifies the replication policy for the storage partition.

state

string / required

Creates, updates (present) or deletes (absent) a storage partition.

Choices:

  • "present"

  • "absent"

token

string

The authentication token to verify a user on the Storage Virtualize system.

To generate a token, use the ibm.storage_virtualize.ibm_svc_auth module.

username

string

The parameters username and password are required if not using token to authenticate a user.

validate_certs

boolean

Validates certification.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

Notes

Note

  • This module supports check_mode.
