Note

This module is part of the netapp_eseries.santricity collection (version 1.3.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install netapp\_eseries.santricity.

To use it in a playbook, specify: netapp_eseries.santricity.na_santricity_iscsi_target.

Synopsis

  • Configure the settings of an E-Series iSCSI target

Parameters

Parameter

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.

chap_secret

aliases: chap, password

string

Enable Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP), utilizing this value as the password.

When this value is specified, we will always trigger an update (changed=True). We have no way of verifying whether or not the password has changed.

The chap secret may only use ascii characters with values between 32 and 126 decimal.

The chap secret must be no less than 12 characters, but no greater than 57 characters in length.

The chap secret is cleared when not specified or an empty string.

name

aliases: alias

string

The name/alias to assign to the iSCSI target.

This alias is often used by the initiator software in order to make an iSCSI target easier to identify.

ping

boolean

Enable ICMP ping responses from the configured iSCSI ports.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

ssid

string

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

Default: "1"

unnamed_discovery

boolean

When an initiator initiates a discovery session to an initiator port, it is considered an unnamed discovery session if the iSCSI target iqn is not specified in the request.

This option may be disabled to increase security if desired.

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

validate_certs

boolean

Should https certificates be validated?

Choices:

  • false

  • true ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • Check mode is supported.

  • Some of the settings are dependent on the settings applied to the iSCSI interfaces. These can be configured using ERROR while parsing M('na_santricity_iscsi_interface'): parameter ‘na_santricity_iscsi_interface’ is not a FQCN.

  • This module requires a Web Services API version of >= 1.3.

  • 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.
