New-NcClusterLogForward generating a StackOverflowException

The following is what I am getting when using the New-NcClusterLogForward cmdlet. I am using version 4.4 of PowerShell Toolkit. The cluster is ONTAP 9.2 vSIM.


Is there a workaround or a fix for this issue that I can implement?







PS C:\Users\chrisj1> import-module dataontap
PS C:\Users\chrisj1> Connect-NcController -Name -Credential (Get-Credential)

cmdlet Get-Credential at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:

Name                 Address           Vserver              Version
----                 -------           -------              -------
cj-cluster01.sydl...                          NetApp Release 9.2: Mon Jun 19 22:20:04 UTC 2017

PS C:\Users\chrisj1> New-NcClusterLogForward -destination -port 514
WARNING: WriteObject: object has no NcController field.

Process is terminated due to StackOverflowException.



Re: New-NcClusterLogForward generating a StackOverflowException

Hi Chris,


I'm not certain what would be causing the cmdlet to crash your powershell session but here is a workaround by invoking the ZAPI.


   [Parameter(Mandatory=$True, HelpMessage="The cluster to connect to")]   
   [Parameter(Mandatory=$True, HelpMessage="The credentials for the cluster")]   
Import-Module DataONTAP
Connect-NcController -Name $Cluster -HTTPS -Credential $Credentials
$request = New-Object "System.Xml.XmlDocument"
Write-Host "Invoking the 'cluster-log-forward-create' ZAPI"                 
$response = Invoke-NcSystemApi $request

Here is an example usage:


PS C:\Scripts\PowerShell\Projects\CreateClusterLogFoward> .\CreateClusterLogFoward.ps1 -Cluster cluster2.testlab.local -Credentials $credentials

Name                 Address           Vserver              Version
----                 -------           -------              -------
cluster2.testlab....                          NetApp Release 9.1: Thu Dec 22 23:05:58 UTC 2016
Invoking the 'cluster-log-forward-create' ZAPI

destination   : wfa.testlab.local
facility      : user
force         : false
port          : 514
protocol      : udp-unencrypted
return-record : true
verify-server : false

And from the CLI it now shows the cluster log foward configuration:


cluster2::> cluster log-forwarding show

                                                Verify  Syslog
Destination Host         Port   Protocol        Server  Facility
------------------------ ------ --------------- ------  --------
wfa.testlab.local        514    udp-unencrypted false   user

Hope that helps
