PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

[ Edited ]

PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 has updates for the SANtricity PowerShell module. This new update doubles the total number of Cmdlets that cover all aspects of managing and monitoring the E/EF platform. Create scripts that stand up development configurations and easily migrate data from development to test to production environments. For pre-existing workloads, the SANtricity PowerShell toolkit is designed to integrate into your existing enterprise monitoring scripts and applications. Easily troubleshoot volume and drive performance by collecting performance data, which can be stored in an Excel readable format and analyzed to find over and underperforming assets. Insight from the analysis can help you better understand your workloads and adjust the storage configuration to maximize your investment.

Re: PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

I found a bug in the "Set-NaVolAutosize" module, the "-MinimumSize" flag actually is the Maximum AutoGrow size. For example, if you issue the following: 

 

Set-NaVolAutosize -Name test -MinimumSize 2g -MaximumSize 4g -IncrementSize 1g -GrowThresholdPercent 90 -ShrinkThresholdPercent 50 -EnableGrowShrink

 

The Autogrow maximum size gets set to 2g not 4g. Not sure where to report this bug. It exists in both versions I tested, 4.0.0 and 4.1.0.

Re: PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

What is the underlying "get-natoolkitversion" number? Please provide. Thanks.

Re: PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

It is Data ONTAP module 3.3 (same as in PowerShell Toolkit 4.0). In 4.1, Santricity module alone has got some updates.

I think we should document the individual toolkit version numbers in the download page collateral content and I'll take action to get this information there. Thanks for contacting!

@maxxoverclockerSorry about that. We've taken note of this and rest assured we will have this fixed in the next release.

Re: PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

Thank you.

Specifically I was looking for the entire output right now.

I have installed 4.1 version of Data ONTAP powershell toolkit

and the version that I see from "get-natoolkitversion" shows 3.3.0.65

 

PS C:\Users\miksmit2> Get-NaToolkitVersion

Major Minor Build Revision
----- ----- ----- --------
3 3 0 65

 

Please confirm that this 3.3.0.65 corresponds to version 4.1 of the msi.

 

One other suggestion: both pieces of information should be available in the "Add and remove programs" part of windows as well.

This will help to confirm successful installation of the latest toolkit. 

 

Thanks,

Mike Smith

Hi, i´m trying to install the toolkit unattended but this doesn´t work.

I think it is because there is shown a Windows with Title "NetApp.Santricity - WebService Proxy Remote Access" and the installer waits for the "ok" button.

 

My command for installation is

msiexec /i c:\tmp\NetApp_PowerShell_Toolkit_4.1.0.msi /l* c:\tmp\PSToolkit.install_log.txt /qn ALLUSERS=1 REBOOT=ReallySuppress

 

I´ve also tried

msiexec /i c:\tmp\NetApp_PowerShell_Toolkit_4.1.0.msi /l* c:\tmp\PSToolkit.install_log.txt /qb-! ALLUSERS=1 REBOOT=ReallySuppress but nothing is working.

 

Is there a Property in the msi which suppresses the Popup?

 

Thanks in advance

Daniel

Re: PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

I am having trouble installing this Powershell Tookit 4.1 I receive the following message during install:

 

This application requires PowerShell 3.0 or above. Please install the required PowerShell version and then run this installer again.

 

I am running Windows 8.1 x64

 

PS C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0> $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

Major  Minor  Build  Revision
-----  -----  -----  --------
4      0      -1     -1     

 

I have checked HKLM\Software\Microsoft\PowerShell\3\Install is DWORD 1

 

The installer is an .msi so there is no run as administrator option. Any ideas I can try?

Re: PowerShell Toolkit 4.1 Update

Select the installer along with Shift key to find "Run as administrator" option.
