Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Hi PowerShell community,

Glad to announce availability of Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit Version 3.2.

The Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit can be downloaded from the NetApp support site: http://support.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/powershell_toolkit/

Thanks

Rajesh.R

 

Version 3.2 release notes:

Major features

  • Data ONTAP 8.3 API support

Toolkit 3.2 includes API coverage for Data ONTAP 8.3.  This includes 126 new cmdlets and 31 cmdlets with new parameters. There are several categories introduced in Data ONTAP 8.3 and Toolkit 3.2 introduces two of them, namely MetroCluster and Storage Pool.

 

The following clustered Data ONTAP categories contain new cmdlets:

  • aggr (16 cmdlets)
  • cifs (13 cmdlets)
  • metrocluster (new category - 26 cmdlets)
  • net (48 cmdlets)
    • ipspace (4 cmdlets)
    • firewall (10 cmdlets)
    • failover group (4 cmdlets)
    • subnet (5 cmdlets)
    • port broadcast domain (7 cmdlets)
    • route (4 cmdlets)
    • arp (5 cmdlets)
    • ndp (9 cmdlets)
  • storage pool (new category - 8 cmdlets)
  • snapmirror (1 cmdlets)
  • vserver (7 cmdlets)

Enhancements

  • Get-NaDiskwill use storage-disk-get-iter when available.
  • ConvertTo-NaVhdx will create a fully-allocated dynamic VHDX instead of a fixed-size VHDX.
  • Invoke-NcSysstat now works with Data ONTAP 8.3
  • Fibre channel port information has been added to the output of Get-NaHostFcAdapter.

Fixes

  • ConvertTo-NaVmdk could fail when connecting to a vserver management LIF that is also a CIFS data LIF and a network name was used.
  • ConvertTo-NaVmdk could fail when connecting to a vserver by name when DNS round robin is used.
  • Set-NcTime would fail for Data ONTAP 8.2 and higher.
  • Reset-NcCifsPassword did not have a default parameter set.
  • Get-NaVol could fail in the vfiler context.

Hi,

 

Is connect-NcController -RPC an option yet?

 

Thnx,

Leon

Re: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Hello Leon,

 

connect-NcController -RPC  options is not supported as RPC based connectivity option is not supported in C-mode, its supported only in 7-mode.

 

Re: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Hi Vinith,

 

Ok. Why is RPC dropped in cDOT? 

 

 

Re: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Quick question. Are the new cmdlets also working for Ontap 8.2? fe get-ncaggrspace

Re: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Hi TNAE,

The new cmdlets introduced in Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2 work only on Data ONTAP 8.3. They will not work with older versions of Data ONTAP.

In the particular case of Get-NcAggrSpace, you can get the same information on DataONTAP 8.2 by using the AggrSpaceAttributes property of Get-NcAggr cmdlet. You can define a function like

Function Get-NcAggrSpace-SN($inp) {
     $res = Get-NcAggr $inp
    foreach ($a in $res) {
            Write-Output Name: $a.Name
            Write-Output $a.AggrSpaceAttributes
    }
}

and now use "Get-NcAggrSpace-SN" as a command to get the same information for older Data ONTAP versions as "Get-NcAggrSpace" gives on DataONTAP 8.3

Hi, 

where can i get the release notes for the 3.2 Tollkit ?

i want to see what is new.

 

Thanks,

Tomer.

Re: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Import the DataONTAP module and type "Show-NcHelp". This takes few minutes and opens up a html page in the default browser. A "Release Notes" link must be available in there.

Re: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

Hi,

Cant i read it without installing ?
