ONTAP v8.0 onvwords adapter-type option not existing

Hi All,

        While executing  cli "fcp-adapter-list-info" ,I have observed for ONTAP v8.0 onwards that "adapter-type"  attribute is not present. I have seen this behavior for array with cfmode Single Image. Is this behavior also applicable for arrays with cfmod Cluster ? And what is the way to know the adapter-type ?

Re: ONTAP v8.0 onvwords adapter-type option not existing

You have hit burt 503866.  Unfortunately, it is not public at this time.  It is fixed in Data ONTAP 8.1.  Here is the 8.1 API documentation:

NameRangeTypeDescription
adapterstring
The slot name of the FC adapter.
adapter-typestring
optional
Type of the adapter. Possible values are "physical", "local", "standby", "partner". If an error occured while retrieving info for this adapter, this will not be returned. Starting with Data ONTAP 8.0, only single_image cfmode is supported. Outputs related to other cfmodes are deprecated and no longer returned by this api.

Since only single_image cfmode is supported, adapter-type was removed.  It should not have been removed for API compatibility reasons, and was returned in Data ONTAP 8.1.
