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

automatic_load_balancing
string
    Choices:
  • enabled
  • disabled
Enable automatic load balancing to allow incoming traffic from the hosts to be dynamically managed and balanced across both controllers.
Automatic load balancing requires host connectivity reporting to be enabled.
cache_block_size
integer
Size of the cache's block size.
All volumes on the storage system share the same cache space; therefore, the volumes can have only one cache block size.
See na_santricity_facts for available sizes.
cache_flush_threshold
integer
This is the percentage threshold of the amount of unwritten data that is allowed to remain on the storage array's cache before flushing.
default_host_type
string
Default host type for the storage system.
Either one of the following names can be specified, Linux DM-MP, VMWare, Windows, Windows Clustered, or a host type index which can be found in na_santricity_facts
host_connectivity_reporting
string
    Choices:
  • enabled
  • disabled
Enable host connectivity reporting to allow host connections to be monitored for connection and multipath driver problems.
When automatic_load_balancing==enabled then host_connectivity_reporting must be enabled
login_banner_message
string
Text message that appears prior to the login page.
login_banner_message=="" will delete any existing banner message.
name
string
Set the name of the E-Series storage-system
This label/name doesn't have to be unique.
May be up to 30 characters in length.

aliases: label
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?

Notes

Note

  • Check mode is supported.

  • This module requires Web Services API v1.3 or newer.

  • 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.
