Note

This module is part of the ibm.storage_virtualize collection (version 2.2.0).

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 ibm.storage_virtualize.

To use it in a playbook, specify: ibm.storage_virtualize.ibm_svc_manage_mirrored_volume.

New in ibm.storage_virtualize 1.4.0

Synopsis

  • Ansible interface to manage ‘mkvolume’, ‘addvolumecopy’, ‘rmvolumecopy’, and ‘rmvolume’ volume commands.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

clustername

string / required

The hostname or management IP of the Storage Virtualize system.

compressed

boolean

Specifies if the volume to be created is compressed.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

deduplicated

boolean

Specifies if the volume to be created is deduplicated.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

domain

string

Domain for the Storage Virtualize system.

Valid when hostname is used for the parameter clustername.

grainsize

string

Specifies the grain size (in KB) to use when creating the HyperSwap volume.

log_path

string

Path of debug log file.

name

string / required

Specifies the name to assign to the new volume.

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.

poolA

string

Specifies the name of first storage pool to be used when creating a mirrored volume.

poolB

string

Specifies the name of second storage pool to be used when creating a mirrored volume.

rsize

string

Specifies the rsize (buffersize) in %. Defines how much physical space is initially allocated to the thin-provisioned or compressed volume.

size

string

Specifies the size of mirrored volume in MB. This can also be used to resize a mirrored volume. When resizing, only mandatory parameters can be passed.

state

string / required

Creates (present) or removes (absent) a mirrored volume.

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present"

thin

boolean

Specifies if the volume to be created is thin-provisioned.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

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.

type

string

Specifies the desired volume type.

When the type is local hyperswap, a HyperSwap volume gets created.

When the type is standard and values for PoolA and PoolB arguments are also specified, a “standard mirror” volume gets created.

If a “standard” mirrored volume exists and either PoolA or PoolB is specified, the mirrored volume gets converted to a standard volume.

Choices:

  • "local hyperswap"

  • "standard"

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.
