Default:
80
Recovery point warning threshold
secondaryArrayId
- / required
The ID of the secondary array to be used in mirroring process
ssid
-
Default:
1

state
- / required
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present
A state of present will either create or update the async mirror group.
A state of absent will remove the async mirror group.
syncIntervalMinutes
-
Default:
10
The synchronization interval in minutes
syncWarnThresholdMinutes
-
Default:
10
The threshold (in minutes) for notifying the user that periodic synchronization has taken too long to complete.
validate_certs

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.
