netapp.ontap.na_ontap_cluster_peer module – NetApp ONTAP Manage Cluster peering

Note

This module is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.21.0).

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 netapp.ontap.

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

New in version 2.7.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Create/Delete cluster peer relations on ONTAP

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9 or later

  • Python3

  • When using ZAPI, 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

Parameters

The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.

http_port

integer

Override the default port (80 or 443) with this port

aliases: pass

string

Password for the specified user.

peer_options

dictionary

added in 21.8.0 of netapp.ontap

If any if these options is not specified, the corresponding source option is used.

cert_filepath

string

path to SSL client cert file (.pem).

hostname

string / required

The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.

http_port

integer

Override the default port (80 or 443) with this port

https

boolean

ontapi

integer

The ontap api version to use

password

aliases: pass

string

Password for the specified user.

use_rest

string

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

aliases: user

string

Username when using basic authentication.

validate_certs

boolean

If set to no, the SSL certificates will not be validated.

This should only set to False used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

source_cluster_name

string

The name of the source cluster name in the peer relation to be deleted.

source_intercluster_lifs

aliases: source_intercluster_lif

list / elements=string

added in 2.8.0 of netapp.ontap

List of intercluster addresses of the source cluster.

Used as peer-addresses in destination cluster.

All these intercluster lifs should belong to the source cluster.

state

string

Whether the specified cluster peer should exist or not.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

use_rest

string

Whether to use REST or ZAPI.

always – will always use the REST API if the module supports REST. A warning is issued if the module does not support REST. An error is issued if a module option is not supported in REST.

never – will always use ZAPI if the module supports ZAPI. An error may be issued if a REST option is not supported in ZAPI.

auto – will try to use the REST API if the module supports REST and modules options are supported. Reverts to ZAPI otherwise.

Default: “auto”

username

aliases: user

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,

  2. SSL certificate authentication, using a ssl client cert file, and optionally a private key file.

To use a certificate, the certificate must have been installed in the ONTAP cluster, and cert authentication must have been enabled.

If set to no, the SSL certificates will not be validated.

This should only set to False used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

Notes

Note

  • The modules prefixed with na_ontap are built to support the ONTAP storage platform.

  • https is enabled by default and recommended. To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’
