Synopsis

  • Manage the arrays accessible via a NetApp Web Services Proxy for NetApp E-series storage arrays.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
accept_certificate
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Accept the storage system's certificate automatically even when it is self-signed.
Use na_santricity_certificates to add certificates to SANtricity Web Services Proxy.
SANtricity Web Services Proxy will fail to add any untrusted storage system.
add_discovered_systems
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
This flag will force all discovered storage systems to be added to SANtricity Web Services Proxy.
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.
password
string
Default storage system password which will be used anytime when password has not been provided in the systems sub-options.
The storage system admin password will be set on the device itself with the provided admin password if it is not set.
subnet_mask
string
This is the IPv4 search range for discovering E-Series storage arrays.
IPv4 subnet mask specified in CIDR form. Example 192.168.1.0/24 would search the range 192.168.1.0 to 192.168.1.255.
Be sure to include all management paths in the search range.
systems
list / elements=string
Default:
[]
List of storage system information which defines which systems should be added on SANtricity Web Services Proxy.
Accepts a simple serial number list or list of dictionary containing at minimum the serial or addresses key from the sub-option list.
Note that the serial number will be used as the storage system identifier when an identifier is not specified.
When add_discovered_systems == False and any system serial number not supplied that is discovered will be removed from the proxy.
addresses
list / elements=string
List of storage system's IPv4 addresses.
Mutually exclusive with the sub-option serial.
password
string
This is the storage system admin password.
When not provided default_password will be used.
The storage system admin password will be set on the device itself with the provided admin password if it is not set.
serial
string
Storage system's serial number which can be located on the top of every NetApp E-Series enclosure.
Include any leading zeros.
Mutually exclusive with the sub-option address.
ssid
string
This is the Web Services Proxy's identifier for a storage system.
When ssid is not specified then either the serial or first controller IPv4 address will be used instead.
tags
dictionary
Optional meta tags to associate to the storage system
tags
dictionary
Default meta tags to associate with all storage systems if not otherwise specified in systems sub-options.
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.
