name

aliases: label

string / required

If the host doesn’t yet exist, the label/name to assign at creation time.

If the hosts already exists, this will be used to uniquely identify the host to make any required changes

ports

list / elements=string

A list of host ports you wish to associate with the host.

Host ports are uniquely identified by their WWN or IQN. Their assignments to a particular host are uniquely identified by a label and these must be unique.

label

string / required

A unique label to assign to this port assignment.

port

string / required

The WWN or IQN of the hostPort to assign to this port definition.

type

string / required

The interface type of the port to define.

Acceptable choices depend on the capabilities of the target hardware/software platform.

Choices:

  • "iscsi"

  • "sas"

  • "fc"

  • "ib"

  • "nvmeof"

ssid

string

The ID of the array to manage. This value must be unique for each array.

Default: "1"

state

string

Set to absent to remove an existing host

Set to present to modify or create a new host definition

Choices:

  • "absent"

  • "present" ← (default)

validate_certs

boolean

Should https certificates be validated?

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

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.

  • ERROR while parsing M('netapp_e_storage_system'): parameter ‘netapp_e_storage_system’ is not a FQCN may be utilized for configuring the systems managed by a WSP instance.

Examples

- name: Define or update an existing host named "Host1"
  na_santricity_host:
    ssid: "1"
    api_url: "https://192.168.1.100:8443/devmgr/v2"
    api_username: "admin"
    api_password: "adminpass"
    validate_certs: true
    name: "Host1"
    state: present
    host_type_index: Linux DM-MP
    ports:
      - type: "iscsi"
        label: "PORT_1"
        port: "iqn.1996-04.de.suse:01:56f86f9bd1fe"
      - type: "fc"
        label: "FC_1"
        port: "10:00:FF:7C:FF:FF:FF:01"
      - type: "fc"
        label: "FC_2"
        port: "10:00:FF:7C:FF:FF:FF:00"

- name: Ensure a host named "Host2" doesn"t exist
  na_santricity_host:
    ssid: "1"
    api_url: "https://192.168.1.100:8443/devmgr/v2"
    api_username: "admin"
