PowerShell module with cDot and Fpolicy

Hi,

I'm sure I posted this a few hours, if it turns up as a duplicate perhaps the mods can remove it.

 

Anyway, I'm looking for the cmdlets to manage Fpolicy in cDOT. I've found the cmdlets for 7-mode, but there doesn't seem to be any exact counterpart for the Nc-* ones.

 

I looked under Nc-Vserver, but nothing obvious. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Re: PowerShell module with cDot and Fpolicy

Hello @ChannelTapeFibre,

 

There are a number of cmdlets for managing Fpolicies with ONTAP.  You can view all of them using the Get-Command cmdlet:

 

Get-Command -Module DataONTAP | ?{ $_.Name -match "NcFpolicy" }

CommandType     Name                                               Version    Source

Alternatively, you can use the Get-NcCommand cmdlet from the PSTK:

 

Get-NcCommand -Category FPolicy | Format-Table -AutoSize

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help, but I'm still struggling:

The first error message indicates there is something found around the cmdlet Get-NcFpolicyStatus, but not much more and there is no help entry.

Could there be a problem with my version of Ontap? I'm running 8.3.2, and in another thread I read something about certain QoS cmdlets no longer available after 8.2.

Re: PowerShell module with cDot and Fpolicy

If appears there are some errors loading the module: "CouldNotAutoloadMatchingModule".  Are you able to load the module manually?

 

Import-Module DataONTAP

 

Also, what version of the PSTK are you using?  You can check using the "Get-NaToolkitVersion" cmdlet.

Re: PowerShell module with cDot and Fpolicy

A manual import seems to work, I at least don't get any error message. I should probably point out that I've successfully used other cmdlets in my setup, such as Get-NcVol, Get-NcVserver, Get-NcAggr and Get-NcSnapmirror. As such, I don't suspect I have a problem with importing the module.

 

PS C:\> Import-Module DataONTAP

 

(nothing is returned)


PS C:\> Get-NaToolkitVersion

Re: PowerShell module with cDot and Fpolicy

Ah, obviously. I was running an older version of the module. It would appear that eventhough I downloaded the latest version of the PowerShell toolkit, an older version was installed and the new install did not upgrade the version. I removed the module folder manually, and reran the installer. 

New results:

PS C:\> Get-NaToolkitVersion

Major Minor Build Revision
----- ----- ----- --------
4 0 0 231

 

Thanks for nudging me in the right direction.

 

To summarize; newer installs of the toolkit may not always upgrade existing installs.

Re: PowerShell module with cDot and Fpolicy

That behavior is/was a result of the switch to the single "unified" toolkit deployer...where both ONTAP and E-Series modules were packaged together in a single installer.

 

Glad you were able to get it straightened out!
