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: No disk groups
  netapp_e_storagepool:
    ssid: "{{ ssid }}"
    name: "{{ item }}"
    state: absent
    api_url: "{{ netapp_api_url }}"
    api_username: "{{ netapp_api_username }}"
    api_password: "{{ netapp_api_password }}"
    validate_certs: "{{ netapp_api_validate_certs }}"
