Synopsis

  • Create, modify or erase directory services configurations. There is no facility to SSL certificates at this time. Use the FlashBlade GUI for this additional configuration work.

  • If updating a directory service and i(bind_password) is provided this will always cause a change, even if the password given isn’t different from the current. This makes this part of the module non-idempotent..

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.7
