Get-NaShelf Does Not Return Output for AT/AT-FCX

[ Edited ]

Get-NaShelf does not return output for AT/AT-FCX loops, output is only returned for ESH4/ESH2 loops.  Is this a bug?  I'm running Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2.   ONTAP 7-Mode 7.3.3P5

Re: Get-NaShelf Does Not Return Output for AT/AT-FCX

Get-NaShelf does not seem to work in version 3.2.1

 

It only returns the ESH2/4 shelves.

What does Get-NaShelf return just on its own?

 

Are other shelf types connected to the system?

 

I do have one system in particular that only has AT-FCX shelves attached and Get-NaShelf returns both of them.

 

However on another system, that has both ESH2/4 and AT-FCX shelves attached it only returns the ESH shelves.

 

 

Re: Get-NaShelf Does Not Return Output for AT/AT-FCX

This system only has AT-FCX.. But the reality is we are using a newer PS release with really old ontap version and code.. What version are you on?

Re: Get-NaShelf Does Not Return Output for AT/AT-FCX

The system that does not show the AT-FCX shelves is running 8.0.1

Re: Get-NaShelf Does Not Return Output for AT/AT-FCX

I vaguelly remember some general issues with FCX shelves management in earlier 8.0 releases. May be what you see is not specific to PS toolkit at all. You really should update, this is just too old.

Re: Get-NaShelf Does Not Return Output for AT/AT-FCX

Yeah it could be a problem with the API itself rather than the PS scripts.

 

I agree its a bit old however given that this system has ESH2 modules, unfortunately we cant take it past the 8.0.x release family. (I believe 8.0.5 was the last release to support ESH2 modules)

 

It's cool, i was just devloping this script as a means to learn the netapp powershell commands and write some simple scripts to document an enviroment.
