Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
api_password
string / required
The password to authenticate with the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
api_url
string / required
The url to the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
Example https://prod-1.wahoo.acme.com:8443/devmgr/v2
api_username
string / required
The username to authenticate with the SANtricity Web Services Proxy or Embedded Web Services API.
clear_mel_events
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
This flag will force firmware to be activated in spite of the storage system mel-event issues.
Warning! This will clear all storage system mel-events. Use at your own risk!
firmware
string / required
Path to the firmware file.
Due to concurrency issues, use na_santricity_proxy_firmware_upload to upload firmware and nvsram to SANtricity Web Services Proxy when upgrading multiple systems at the same time on the same instance of the proxy.
nvsram
string
Path to the NVSRAM file.
NetApp recommends upgrading the NVSRAM when upgrading firmware.
Due to concurrency issues, use na_santricity_proxy_firmware_upload to upload firmware and nvsram to SANtricity Web Services Proxy when upgrading multiple systems at the same time on the same instance of the proxy.
ssid
string
Default:
1
The ID of the array to manage. This value must be unique for each array.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Should https certificates be validated?
wait_for_completion
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
This flag will cause module to wait for any upgrade actions to complete.
When changes are required to both firmware and nvsram and task is executed against SANtricity Web Services Proxy, the firmware will have to complete before nvsram can be installed.

Notes

Note

  • 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.
