hosts

list / elements=string

List of host names/labels to add to the group

name

Name of the host group to manage

ssid

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.

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

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key

Description

clusterRef

string

The unique identification value for this object. Other objects may use this reference value to refer to the cluster.

Returned: always except when state is absent

Sample: “3233343536373839303132333100000000000000”

confirmLUNMappingCreation

boolean

If true, indicates that creation of LUN-to-volume mappings should require careful confirmation from the end-user, since such a mapping will alter the volume access rights of other clusters, in addition to this one.

Returned: always

Sample: false

hosts

list / elements=string

A list of the hosts that are part of the host group after all operations.

Returned: always except when state is absent

Sample: [“HostA”, “HostB”]

id

string

Sample: “3233343536373839303132333100000000000000”

isSAControlled

boolean

If true, indicates that I/O accesses from this cluster are subject to the storage array’s default LUN-to-volume mappings. If false, indicates that I/O accesses from the cluster are subject to cluster-specific LUN-to-volume mappings.

Returned: always except when state is absent

Sample: false

label

string

The user-assigned, descriptive label string for the cluster.

Returned: always

Sample: “MyHostGroup”

name

string

same as label

Returned: always except when state is absent
