host_type

aliases: host_type_index

string

This is the type of host to be mapped

Either one of the following names can be specified, Linux DM-MP, VMWare, Windows, Windows Clustered, or a host type index which can be found in ERROR while parsing M('netapp_e_facts'): parameter ‘netapp_e_facts’ is not a FQCN

log_path

string

added in netapp_eseries.santricity 2.7

A local path to a file to be used for debug logging

name

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

    api_username: admin
    api_password: myPassword
    name: "Host1"
    state: present
