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=4.3.0

Examples

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

# Add new storage connection:
- ovirt_storage_connection:
    storage: myiscsi
    address: 10.34.63.199
    target: iqn.2016-08-09.domain-01:nickname
    port: 3260
    type: iscsi

# Update the existing storage connection address:
- ovirt_storage_connection:
    id: 26915c96-92ff-47e5-9e77-b581db2f2d36
    address: 10.34.63.204
    force: true

# Remove storage connection:
- ovirt_storage_connection:
    id: 26915c96-92ff-47e5-9e77-b581db2f2d36

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
id
string
On success if storage connection is found.
ID of the storage connection which is managed

Sample:
7de90f31-222c-436c-a1ca-7e655bd5b60c
