NFS status using python API

Hello, 

 

just started with experimenting with python API for netapp, however, when i used the example nfs.py (from API documentation), the results are quite unexpected. Mainly i mean the example for getting the nfs status from the netapp. 

 

I just took the example script and run it, however i get "NFS status: disabled" instead of enabled. When i try the same powershell script (also provided from API docu), the result is expected "NFS: enabled"

 

Have anybody seen this behavior? Is it a bug in API? or i'm missing something else? 

 

I've tried it with python3 (3.4.3) and python2 (2.7.10). both is getting the same output "nfs disabled" even if the NFS is enabled.

(unfortunately it's not on linux machine, but run under cygwin)

Re: NFS status using python API

Can you fix the formatting of your message, I think it's all over the place, it would help understanding!

Re: NFS status using python API

Not sure if you are still chasing help with this, but start with the typo

 

out = s.invoke("nfs=disable")

should be

out = s.invoke("nfs-disable")

 

This is a type on the NetApp example 

Re: NFS status using python API

Are you executing this against a 7-mode or clustered Data ONTAP system?  With cDOT the results may be unpredictable since the NFS server belongs to the SVM and there can be more than one SVM.

 

Here is a python snippet which will print the NFS server and protocol status for each SVM which has the NFS protocol.  Note that if NFS has not been "enabled" for the SVM, regardless of the status of the service, it won't show up in this listing.

 

 

print("{:20s} {:12s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s}".format(
    "SVM",
    "NFS Enabled",
    "v2",
    "v3",
    "v4.0",
    "v4.1"))

result = server.invoke('nfs-service-get-iter')

if result.results_status() == "failed":
    reason = result.results_reason()
    print( reason + "\n" )
    sys.exit(2)

if result.child_get_int('num-records') == 0:
    print( "No SVMs returned" )
    sys.exit(0)

for service in result.child_get('attributes-list').children_get():
    svm_name = service.child_get_string('vserver')
    svm_nfs2_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv2-enabled');
    svm_nfs3_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv3-enabled');
    svm_nfs40_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv40-enabled');
    svm_nfs41_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv41-enabled');
    
    server.set_vserver(svm_name)
    query = server.invoke('nfs-status')
    svm_nfs_enabled = query.child_get_string('is-enabled')
    
    print("{:20s} {:12s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s}".format(
        svm_name,
        svm_nfs_enabled,
        svm_nfs2_status,
        svm_nfs3_status,
        svm_nfs40_status,
        svm_nfs41_status))

 

Alternatively, if you're executing against the SVM directly you wouldn't use the "nfs-service-get-iter" API against the cluster mangement interface, rather you would use the "nfs-service-get" API against the SVM management interface.  Just a subtle difference between them.

 

print("{:20s} {:12s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s}".format(
    "SVM",
    "NFS Enabled",
    "v2",
    "v3",
    "v4.0",
    "v4.1"))

result = server.invoke('nfs-service-get')

if result.results_status() == "failed":
    reason = result.results_reason()
    print( reason + "\n" )
    sys.exit(2)

for service in result.child_get('attributes').children_get():
    svm_name = service.child_get_string('vserver')
    svm_nfs2_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv2-enabled');
    svm_nfs3_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv3-enabled');
    svm_nfs40_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv40-enabled');
    svm_nfs41_status = service.child_get_string('is-nfsv41-enabled');
    
    query = server.invoke('nfs-status')
    svm_nfs_enabled = query.child_get_string('is-enabled')
    
    print("{:20s} {:12s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s} {:6s}".format(
        svm_name,
        svm_nfs_enabled,
        svm_nfs2_status,
        svm_nfs3_status,
        svm_nfs40_status,
        svm_nfs41_status))

Hope that helps.

Re: NFS status using python API

Hello, testing it agains 7-mode only. We dont have cDot yet.

Re: NFS status using python API

seems that i was doing something wrongly in the first place.

So far it seems to work. Maybe a problem between keyboard and chair.
