netapp.ontap.na_ontap_firmware_upgrade – NetApp ONTAP firmware upgrade for SP, shelf, ACP, and disk.

Note

This plugin is part of the netapp.ontap collection.

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

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

New in version 2.9.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Update ONTAP service-prosessor firmware

  • The recommend procedure is to 1. download the firmware package from the NetApp Support site 2. copy the package to a web server 3. download the package from the web server using this module

  • Once a disk qualification, disk, shelf, or ACP firmware package is downloaded, ONTAP will automatically update the related resources in background.

  • It may take some time to complete.

  • For service processor, the update requires a node reboot to take effect.

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.

  • REST support requires ONTAP 9.6 or later.

  • Ansible 2.6

  • Ansible 2.9 or later is strongly recommended as it enables the new collection delivery system.

  • Python2 netapp-lib (2017.10.30) or later. Install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’

  • 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.

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

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
cert_filepath
string
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
path to SSL client cert file (.pem).
not supported with python 2.6.
clear_logs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Clear logs on the device after update. Default value is true.
Not used if force_disruptive_update is False.
disk_fw
string
disk firmware to be updated to.
Not used if force_disruptive_update is False (ONTAP will automatically select the firmware)
fail_on_502_error
boolean
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
The firmware download may take time if the web server is slow and if there are many nodes in the cluster.
ONTAP will break the ZAPI connection after 5 minutes with a 502 Bad Gateway error, even though the download is still happening.
By default, this module ignores this error and assumes the download is progressing as ONTAP does not provide a way to check the status.
When setting this option to true, the module will report 502 as an error.
feature_flags
dictionary
added in 20.5.0 of netapp.ontap
Enable or disable a new feature.
This can be used to enable an experimental feature or disable a new feature that breaks backward compatibility.
Supported keys and values are subject to change without notice. Unknown keys are ignored.
firmware_type
string
    Choices:
  • service-processor
  • shelf
  • acp
  • disk
Type of firmware to be upgraded. Options include shelf, ACP, service-processor, and disk.
For shelf firmware upgrade the operation is asynchronous, and therefore returns no errors that might occur during the download process.
Shelf firmware upgrade is idempotent if shelf_module_fw is provided .
disk firmware upgrade is idempotent if disk_fw is provided .
With check mode, SP, ACP, disk, and shelf firmware upgrade is not idempotent.
This operation will only update firmware on shelves/disk that do not have the latest firmware-revision.
Not used if force_disruptive_update is False (ONTAP will automatically detect the firmware type)
force_disruptive_update
boolean
added in 20.4.1 of netapp.ontap
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
If set to False, and URL is given, the upgrade is non disruptive. If URL is not given, no operation is performed.
Do not set this to True, unless directed by NetApp Tech Support.
It will force an update even if the resource is not ready for it, and can be disruptive.
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
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enable and disable https.
Ignored when using REST as only https is supported.
Ignored when using SSL certificate authentication as it requires SSL.
install_baseline_image
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Install the version packaged with ONTAP if this parameter is set to true. Otherwise, package must be used to specify the package to install.
Not used if force_disruptive_update is False (ONTAP will automatically select the firmware)
key_filepath
string
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
path to SSL client key file.
node
string
Node on which the device is located.
Not required if package_url is present and force_disruptive_update is False.
If this option is not given, the firmware will be downloaded on all nodes in the cluster,
and the resources will be updated in background on all nodes, except for service processor.
For service processor, the upgrade will happen automatically when each node is rebooted.
ontapi
integer
The ontap api version to use
package
string
Name of the package file containing the firmware to be installed. Not required when -baseline is true.
Not used if force_disruptive_update is False.
package_url
string
added in 20.4.1 of netapp.ontap
URL of the package file containing the firmware to be downloaded.
Once the package file is downloaded to a node, the firmware update will happen automatically in background.
For SP, the upgrade will happen automatically when a node is rebooted.
For SP, the upgrade will happen automatically if autoupdate is enabled (which is the recommended setting).
password
string
Password for the specified user.

aliases: pass
reboot_sp
boolean
added in 20.6.1 of netapp.ontap
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←

Only available if 'firmware_type' is 'service-processor'.
shelf_module_fw
string
Shelf module firmware to be updated to.

state
string
Default:
"present"
Whether the specified ONTAP firmware should be upgraded or not.
update_type
string
Type of firmware update to be performed. Options include serial_full, serial_differential, network_full.
Not used if force_disruptive_update is False (ONTAP will automatically select the firmware)
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,
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.

aliases: user
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
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.
