Requirements

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

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

  • Ansible 2.9

  • Python package ipaddress. Install using ‘pip install ipaddress’

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

  • 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;’
