Workflow to create a CIFS and/or NFS Vserver
2013-04-04 05:46 PM
I put together a workflow to create a new Vserver with CIFS and/or NFS enabled. This required creating a couple extra commands to create unix users and groups, set the default unix user for cifs, and setup user mapping. I just wanted to share and get some feedback if there are some better ways to do some of these things.
A couple of other notes, this prompts for almost all inputs but does make a few assumptions, for the root volume it is <vserver name>_root and for the name switching it is set to use file. Also I have not resolved a method for unlocking and setting a password for the vsadmin account but will in the future. Also I have separate interfaces created for NFS, CIFS, and Management, but you could tweak to setup the number of interfaces you want.
For the commands I created I used the Invoke-NcSsh powershell commandlet as commandlets did not exist for what I wanted to do and as far as I could tell doing it via perl was not an option either. The Invoke-NcSsh commandlet included with WFA threw an error so I replaced the powershell commandlets provided with WFA with the latest ones available and then it worked fine
