netapp.ontap.na_ontap_disks module – NetApp ONTAP Assign disks to nodes

Note

This module is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.23.0).

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_disks.

New in version 2.7.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Assign disks to a node.

  • Disk autoassign must be turned off before using this module to prevent the disks being reassigned automatically by the cluster.

  • This can be done through na_ontap_disk_options or via the cli “disk option modify -node <node_name> -autoassign off”.

  • If min_spares is not specified min_spares default is 1 if SSD or 2 for any other disk type.

  • If disk_count is not specified all unassigned disks will be assigned to the node specified.

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9 or later - 2.12 or later is recommended.

  • Python3 - 3.9 or later is recommended.

  • 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

Parameter

Comments

not supported with python 2.6.

disk_count

integer

added in 2.9.0 of netapp.ontap

Total number of disks a node should own.

disk_type

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

Assign specified type of disk (or set of disks).

Choices:

  • ATA

  • BSAS

  • FCAL

  • FSAS

  • LUN

feature_flags

dictionary

added in 20.5.0 of netapp.ontap

Enable or disable a new feature.

Supported keys and values are subject to change without notice. Unknown keys are ignored.

force_ontap_version

string

added in 21.23.0 of netapp.ontap

Override the cluster ONTAP version when using REST.

The behavior is undefined if the version does not match the target cluster.

This is provided as a work-around when the cluster version cannot be read because of permission issues. See https://github.com/ansible-collections/netapp.ontap/wiki/Known-issues.

This should be in the form 9.10 or 9.10.1 with each element being an integer number.

When use_rest is set to auto, this may force a switch to ZAPI based on the version and platform capabilities.

Ignored with ZAPI.

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

Enable and disable https.

Ignored when using REST as only https is supported.

Ignored when using SSL certificate authentication as it requires SSL.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

key_filepath

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

path to SSL client key file.

min_spares

integer

added in 21.7.0 of netapp.ontap

Minimum spares required per type for the node.

node

string / required

The node that we want to assign/unassign disks.

ontapi

integer

The ontap api version to use

password

aliases: pass

string

Password for the specified user.

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.

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
