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.

Examples

- name: Define or update an existing host named 'Host1'
  netapp_e_host:
    ssid: "1"
    api_url: "10.113.1.101:8443"
    api_username: "admin"
    api_password: "myPassword"
    name: "Host1"
    state: present
    host_type_index: 28
    ports:
      - type: 'iscsi'
        label: 'PORT_1'
        port: 'iqn.1996-04.de.suse:01:56f86f9bd1fe'
      - type: 'fc'
        label: 'FC_1'

        label: 'FC_2'
        port: '10:00:FF:7C:FF:FF:FF:00'

- name: Ensure a host named 'Host2' doesn't exist
  netapp_e_host:
    ssid: "1"
    api_url: "10.113.1.101:8443"

    api_password: "myPassword"
