Synopsis

  • Ansible interface to manage ‘mkfcmap’, ‘rmfcmap’, and ‘chfcmap’ volume commands. This module configures “clone”, “snapshot” or “backup” type FlashCopy mappings.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

clustername

string / required

The hostname or management IP of the Storage Virtualize system.

consistgrp

string

Specifies the name of the consistency group to which the FlashCopy mapping is to be added.

Parameters consistgrp and noconsistgrp are mutually exclusive.

Valid when state=present, to create or modify a FlashCopy mapping.

copyrate

string

Specifies the copy rate. The rate varies between 0-150.

If unspecified, the default copy rate of 50 for clone and 0 for snapshot is used.

Valid when state=present, to create or modify a FlashCopy mapping.

copytype

string

Specifies the copy type when creating the FlashCopy mapping.

Required when state=present, to create a FlashCopy mapping.

Choices:

  • "snapshot"

  • "clone"

  • "backup"

domain

string

Domain for the Storage Virtualize system.

Valid when hostname is used for the parameter clustername.

force

boolean

Brings the target volume online. This parameter is required if the FlashCopy mapping is in the stopped state.

Valid when state=absent, to delete a FlashCopy mapping.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

grainsize

string

Specifies the grain size for the FlashCopy mapping.

The grainsize can be set to 64 or 256. The default value is 256.

Valid when state=present, to create a FlashCopy mapping.

log_path

string

Path of debug log file.

mdiskgrp

string

Specifies the name of the storage pool to use when creating the target volume.

If unspecified, the pool associated with the source volume is used.

Valid when state=present, to create a FlashCopy mapping.

name

string / required

Specifies the name of the FlashCopy mapping.

noconsistgrp

boolean

If specified True, FlashCopy mapping is removed from the consistency group.

Parameters noconsistgrp and consistgrp are mutually exclusive.

Valid when state=present, to modify a FlashCopy mapping.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

old_name

string

Specifies the old name of an mdiskgrp.

Applies when state=present, to rename the existing mdiskgrp.

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.

source

string

Specifies the name of the source volume.

Required when state=present, to create a FlashCopy mapping.

state

string / required

Creates or updates (present) or removes (absent) a FlashCopy mapping.

Choices:

  • "present"

  • "absent"

target

string

Specifies the name of the target volume.

Required when state=present, to create a FlashCopy mapping.

token

string

added in ibm.storage_virtualize 1.5.0

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

To generate a token, use the ibm_svc_auth module.

username

string

REST API username for the Storage Virtualize system.

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.
