Pirate Pack for VMware - clustered ONTAP - v1.0


Brought to you by the Pirate -

These workflows were tested against VMware vSphere 4.1 and 5.1 using clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.1.  These workflows require that VMware's Powercli Toolkit be installed on the WFA server.  I tested with 5.0 and 5.1 with no issues.  Also, the WFA server must have the credentials for the vCenter Server and the vCenter Datasource needs to be configured (Check the Appendix of the IAG for this information).  More information about Commands, Function, Templates is available in the README file found in the package.


VMware NFS Datastores with multi-tenant clustered Ontap



This workflow will create a new Vserver or use an existing Vserver.  The Export Policy and Rule Set will be created based on the vSphere cluster name. 

A new Data Lif will be created for every new Volume.  The Data Lif addresses will be incremented from the initial starting number.

All of the volumes will be balanced across available aggregates and controllers in the cluster.

Remove Vserver and Volumes - VMware



Remove NFS datastores from ESX Cluster.  Offline and destroy clustered volumes.  Once complete, remove the Vserver and Root volume.


WFA Version: B11275
