purefa_ds – Configure FlashArray Directory Service

New in version 2.6.

Synopsis

  • Set or erase configuration for the directory service. There is no facility to SSL certificates at this time. Use the FlashArray GUI for this additional configuration work.
  • To modify an existing directory service configuration you must first delete an existing configuration and then recreate with new settings.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • python >= 2.7
  • purestorage

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aa_group
string
Sets the common Name (CN) of the directory service group containing administrators with full privileges when managing the FlashArray. The name should be just the Common Name of the group without the CN= specifier. Common Names should not exceed 64 characters in length.
Not Supported from Purity 5.2.0 or higher. Use purefa_dsrole module.
api_token
string / required
FlashArray API token for admin privileged user.
base_dn
string / required
Sets the base of the Distinguished Name (DN) of the directory service groups. The base should consist of only Domain Components (DCs). The base_dn will populate with a default value when a URI is entered by parsing domain components from the URI. The base DN should specify DC= for each domain component and multiple DCs should be separated by commas.
bind_password
string
Sets the password of the bind_user user name account.
bind_user
string
Sets the user name that can be used to bind to and query the directory.
For Active Directory, enter the username - often referred to as sAMAccountName or User Logon Name - of the account that is used to perform directory lookups.
For OpenLDAP, enter the full DN of the user.
enable
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Whether to enable or disable directory service support.
fa_url
string / required
FlashArray management IPv4 address or Hostname.
group_base
string
Specifies where the configured groups are located in the directory tree. This field consists of Organizational Units (OUs) that combine with the base DN attribute and the configured group CNs to complete the full Distinguished Name of the groups. The group base should specify OU= for each OU and multiple OUs should be separated by commas. The order of OUs is important and should get larger in scope from left to right. Each OU should not exceed 64 characters in length.
Not Supported from Purity 5.2.0 or higher. Use purefa_dsrole module.
ro_group
string
Sets the common Name (CN) of the configured directory service group containing users with read-only privileges on the FlashArray. This name should be just the Common Name of the group without the CN= specifier. Common Names should not exceed 64 characters in length.
Not Supported from Purity 5.2.0 or higher. Use purefa_dsrole module.
sa_group
string
Sets the common Name (CN) of the configured directory service group containing administrators with storage-related privileges on the FlashArray. This name should be just the Common Name of the group without the CN= specifier. Common Names should not exceed 64 characters in length.
Not Supported from Purity 5.2.0 or higher. Use purefa_dsrole module.
state
string
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present ←
Create or delete directory service configuration
uri
list
A list of up to 30 URIs of the directory servers. Each URI must include the scheme ldap:// or ldaps:// (for LDAP over SSL), a hostname, and a domain name or IP address. For example, ldap://ad.company.com configures the directory service with the hostname "ad" in the domain "company.com" while specifying the unencrypted LDAP protocol.

Notes

Note

  • This module requires the purestorage Python library
  • You must set PUREFA_URL and PUREFA_API environment variables if fa_url and api_token arguments are not passed to the module directly
