netapp.ontap.na_ontap_cluster_peer – NetApp ONTAP Manage Cluster peering

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_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

  • 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;’

source_intercluster_lifs
list / elements=string
