Notes

Note

  • This module requires infinisdk python library

  • You must set INFINIBOX_USER and INFINIBOX_PASSWORD environment variables if user and password arguments are not passed to the module directly

  • Ansible uses the infinisdk configuration file ~/.infinidat/infinisdk.ini if no credentials are provided. See http://infinisdk.readthedocs.io/en/latest/getting_started.html

  • All Infinidat modules support check mode (–check). However, a dryrun that creates resources may fail if the resource dependencies are not met for a task. For example, consider a task that creates a volume in a pool. If the pool does not exist, the volume creation task will fail. It will fail even if there was a previous task in the playbook that would have created the pool but did not because the pool creation was also part of the dry run.

Examples

- name: Create new host
  infini_host:
    name: foo.example.com
    user: admin
    password: secret
    system: ibox001
