Notes

Note

  • Check mode is supported.

  • Enabling ASUP will allow our support teams to monitor the logs of the storage-system in order to proactively respond to issues with the system. It is recommended that all ASUP-related options be enabled, but they may be disabled if desired.

  • This API is currently only supported with the Embedded Web Services API v2.0 and higher.

  • The E-Series Ansible modules require either an instance of the Web Services Proxy (WSP), to be available to manage the storage-system, or an E-Series storage-system that supports the Embedded Web Services API.

  • Embedded Web Services is currently available on the E2800, E5700, EF570, and newer hardware models.

  • netapp_e_storage_system may be utilized for configuring the systems managed by a WSP instance.
