Notes

Note

  • In order to use this module you have to install oVirt Python SDK. To ensure it’s installed with correct version you can create the following task: pip: name=ovirt-engine-sdk-python version=4.2.4

Examples

# Examples don't contain auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication:

# Gather facts about HostStorages with specified target and address:
- ovirt_host_storage_facts:
    host: myhost
    iscsi:
      target: iqn.2016-08-09.domain-01:nickname
      address: 10.34.63.204
- debug:
    var: ovirt_host_storages

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
ovirt_host_storages
list
On success.
List of dictionaries describing the HostStorage. HostStorage attributes are mapped to dictionary keys, all HostStorage attributes can be found at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/host_storage.
