Synopsis

  • Configure settings of an E-Series NVMe interface

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
address
string
The IPv4 address to assign to the NVMe interface
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.
channel
integer
This option specifies the which NVMe controller channel to configure.
The list of choices is not necessarily comprehensive. It depends on the number of ports that are available in the system.
The numerical value represents the number of the channel (typically from left to right on the HIC), beginning with a value of 1.
config_method
string
    Choices:
  • dhcp ←
  • static
The configuration method type to use for this interface.
Only applicable when configuring RoCE
dhcp is mutually exclusive with address, subnet_mask, and gateway.
controller
string
    Choices:
  • A
  • B
The controller that owns the port you want to configure.
Controller names are presented alphabetically, with the first controller as A and the second as B.
gateway
string
The IPv4 gateway address to utilize for the interface.
Only applicable when configuring RoCE
Mutually exclusive with config_method=dhcp
mtu
integer
Default:
1500
The maximum transmission units (MTU), in bytes.
Only applicable when configuring RoCE
This allows you to configure a larger value for the MTU, in order to enable jumbo frames (any value > 1500).
Generally, it is necessary to have your host, switches, and other components not only support jumbo frames, but also have it configured properly. Therefore, unless you know what you're doing, it's best to leave this at the default.

aliases: max_frame_size
speed
string
Default:
"auto"
This is the ethernet port speed measured in Gb/s.
Value must be a supported speed or auto for automatically negotiating the speed with the port.
Only applicable when configuring RoCE
The configured ethernet port speed should match the speed capability of the SFP on the selected port.
ssid
string
Default:
1
The ID of the array to manage. This value must be unique for each array.
state
string
    Choices:
  • enabled ←
  • disabled
Whether or not the specified RoCE interface should be enabled.
Only applicable when configuring RoCE
subnet_mask
string
The subnet mask to utilize for the interface.
Only applicable when configuring RoCE
Mutually exclusive with config_method=dhcp
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Should https certificates be validated?

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.

Return Values
