net-config-set-persistent - configure an interface

Hi,

I am trying to use the ontap api net-config-set-persistent to configure an interface but the result is not quite what I expect. Here is the input:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<netapp  xmlns="http://www.netapp.com/filer/admin" version="1.17">

  <net-config-set-persistent>

    <net-config-info>

      <interfaces>

        <interface-config-info>

          <aliases>

            <ip-address-info>

              <addr-family>af-inet</addr-family>

              <address>

                <ip-address-or-hostname>192.168.82.243</ip-address-or-hostname>

              </address>

              <creator>vfiler:filer-pvf0003</creator>

              <netmask-or-prefix>255.255.255.224</netmask-or-prefix>

            </ip-address-info>

          </aliases>

          <interface-name>vif0-45</interface-name>

          <ipspace-name>default-ipspace</ipspace-name>

          <partner>vif0-45</partner>

          <v4-primary-address>

            <ip-address-info>

              <addr-family>af-inet</addr-family>

              <address>

                <ip-address-or-hostname>192.168.82.229</ip-address-or-hostname>

              </address>

              <creator>vfiler:vfiler0</creator>

              <netmask-or-prefix>255.255.255.224</netmask-or-prefix>

            </ip-address-info>

          </v4-primary-address>

        </interface-config-info>

      </interfaces>

      <routes>

        <route-info>

          <addr-family>af-inet</addr-family>

          <creator>vfiler:vfiler0</creator>

          <destination>

            <ip-address-or-hostname>default</ip-address-or-hostname>

          </destination>

          <ipspace-name>default-ipspace</ipspace-name>

          <metric>1</metric>

          <next-hop>

            <ip-address>192.168.82.226</ip-address>

          </next-hop>

          <route-type>net</route-type>

        </route-info>

      </routes>

    </net-config-info>

  </net-config-set-persistent>

</netapp>

Result generated in the /etc/rc file:

  ifconfig vif0-45 `hostname`-vif0-45 netmask 255.255.255.224 partner vif0-45 up

  ifconfig vif0-45 alias   netmask 255.255.255.224 up

  route add net   1

Instead of:

  ifconfig vif0-45 192.168.82.229 netmask 255.255.255.224 partner vif0-45 up

  ifconfig vif0-45 alias 192.168.82.232 netmask 255.255.255.224 up

  route add net 192.168.82.226 1

Sounds like I am using the api incorrectly ... Has anyone successfully use it?

Thanks,

JB

Did you ever figure out your problem?  You may want to try posting this and related questions on the 'Interfaces' page of the Developer Network Community: https://communities.netapp.com/community/interfaces_and_tools/interfaces

Also, I'm assuming you've already looked through the SDK documentation, but if not, the latest SDK and documentation are here: https://communities.netapp.com/community/interfaces_and_tools/developer
