New in version 2.9.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • This module allows you to gather various information about ONTAP configuration

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

  • 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;’

  • netapp-lib 2020.3.12 is strongly recommended as it provides better error reporting for connection issues.

  • netapp_lib

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.
continue_on_error
list / elements=string
Default:
"never"
By default, this module fails on the first error.
This option allows to provide a list of errors that are not failing the module.
Errors in the list are reported in the output, under the related info element, as an "error" entry.
Possible values are always, never, missing_vserver_api_error, rpc_error, other_error.
missing_vserver_api_error - most likely the API is available at cluster level but not vserver level.
rpc_error - some queries are failing because the node cannot reach another node in the cluster.
key_error - a query is failing because the returned data does not contain an expected key.
for key errors, make sure to report this in Slack. It may be a change in a new ONTAP version.
other_error - anything not in the above list.
always will continue on any error, never will fail on any error, they cannot be used with any other keyword.
desired_attributes
dictionary
added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap
Advanced feature requiring to understand ZAPI internals.
Allows to request a specific attribute that is not returned by default, or to limit the returned attributes.
A dictionary for the zapi desired-attributes element.
An XML tag <tag>value</tag> is a dictionary with tag as the key.
Value can be another dictionary, a list of dictionaries, a string, or nothing.
eg <tag/> is represented as tag:
Only a single subset can be called at a time if this option is set.
It is the caller responsibity to make sure key attributes are present in the right position.
The module will error out if any key attribute is missing.
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.

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.
