Parameters

Parameter

Comments

aux

string

Specifies the auxiliary volume name when creating a remote copy.

clustername

string / required

The hostname or management IP of the Storage Virtualize system.

consistgrp

string

Specifies a consistency group that this relationship will join. If not specified by user, the relationship is created as a stand-alone relationship.

Applies when state=present.

copytype

string

Specifies the mirror type of the remote copy. ‘metro’ means MetroMirror, ‘global’ means GlobalMirror, and ‘GMCV’ means GlobalMirror with change volume.

If not specified, a MetroMirror remote copy will be created when creating a remote copy state=present.

  • "global"

  • "GMCV"

cyclingperiod

integer

Specifies the cycle period in seconds. The default cycle is of 300 seconds.

domain

string

Domain for the Storage Virtualize system.

Valid when hostname is used for the parameter clustername.

force

boolean

Specifies that the relationship must be deleted even if it results in the secondary volume containing inconsistent data.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

log_path

string

Path of debug log file.

master

string

Specifies the master volume name when creating a remote copy.

name

string

Specifies the name to assign to the new remote copy relationship or to operate on the existing remote copy.

noconsistgrp

boolean

Specifies whether to remove the specified relationship from a consistency group, making the relationship a stand-alone relationship.

Applies when state=present.

Choices:

  • false ← (default)

  • 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.

remotecluster

string

Specifies the name of remote cluster when creating a remote copy.

state

string / required

Creates or updates (present), removes (absent) a remote copy relationship.

  • 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.

username
