Synopsis

  • Create, modify or delete SVM on NetApp ONTAP

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

aliases: pass
root_volume
string
Root volume of the SVM.
Cannot be modified after creation.

Cannot be modified after creation.
root_volume_security_style
string
    Choices:
  • unix
  • ntfs

  • unified
Security Style of the root volume.
When specified as part of the vserver-create, this field represents the security style for the Vserver root volume.

Default snapshot policy setting for all volumes of the Vserver. This policy will be assigned to all volumes created in this Vserver unless the volume create request explicitly provides a snapshot policy or volume is modified later with a specific snapshot policy.

Two authentication methods are supported
1. basic authentication, using username and password,
