netapp.ontap.na_ontap_cluster – NetApp ONTAP cluster - create a cluster and add/remove nodes.

Note

This plugin is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.10.0).

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install netapp.ontap.

To use it in a playbook, specify: netapp.ontap.na_ontap_cluster.

New in version 2.6.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Create ONTAP cluster.

  • Add or remove cluster nodes using cluster_ip_address.

  • Adding a node requires ONTAP 9.3 or better.

  • Removing a node requires ONTAP 9.4 or better.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • Ansible 2.9

  • Python3 netapp-lib (2018.11.13) or later. Install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’

  • netapp-lib 2020.3.12 is strongly recommended as it provides better error reporting for connection issues.

  • A physical or virtual clustered Data ONTAP system. The modules support Data ONTAP 9.1 and onward.

  • REST support requires ONTAP 9.6 or later.

  • To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’

When used to remove a node, cluster_ip_address and node_name are mutually exclusive.
ontapi
integer

aliases: pass
single_node_cluster
boolean
added in 19.11.0 of netapp.ontap
    Choices:
  • no

If present, it was observed that 'Cluster' interfaces were deleted, whatever the value.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Whether the specified cluster should exist (deleting a cluster is not supported).
Whether the node identified by its cluster_ip_address should be in the cluster or not.
time_out
integer
added in 21.1.0 of netapp.ontap
Default:
180
time to wait for cluster creation in seconds.
Error out if task is not completed in defined time.
if 0, the request is asynchronous.
default is set to 3 minutes.
use_rest
string
Default:
"auto"
REST API if supported by the target system for all the resources and attributes the module requires. Otherwise will revert to ZAPI.
always -- will always use the REST API
never -- will always use the ZAPI
auto -- will try to use the REST Api
username
string
This can be a Cluster-scoped or SVM-scoped account, depending on whether a Cluster-level or SVM-level API is required.
For more information, please read the documentation https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/nmsdk/9.4/.
Two authentication methods are supported
1. basic authentication, using username and password,
