Synopsis

  • This module allows you to manipulate motd for a vserver

  • It also allows to manipulate motd at the cluster level by using the cluster vserver (cserver)

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
