I played around with the two available commands and they are too limited to effectively interact with protection manager. It's not even possible to assign a protection policy to the newly created dataset, even if the policy already exists.
Anything in the works to have more integration of WFA into Protection Manager?
additional things I'd be looking for minimally are:
- ability to define/change meta data of a dataset (i.e. general properties and naming properties)
- assign a protection policy to a dataset
- assign resource pools to (primary)/backup/mirror for automated provisioning
- assign provisioning policy for (primary)/secondary provisioning
Besides "assign" I'd also like to see "create", but I understand that this may be a bigger effort, especially for policies and schedules.
The best way for WFA to interact with [ Protection Manager / Unified Manager (OCUM) / DFM ] depends on how OCUM is installed and if you prefer CLI commands over SSH or don't mind working with lower-level ZAPI calls.
If OCUM is installed on a Linux host, it's typically easy to use NetApp's SSH PowerShell cmdlet to issue DFM commands. This is the easiest.
If OCUM is installed on Windows,
some people have installed an SSH server service to do the same as above. But, some people can't or won't do this.
The examples I wrote and posted use Perl to issue ZAPI calls to the DFM server. This works with Windows or Linux. Downside is that it requires installing Perl and the NMSDK perl modules, etc. on the WFA server. Again, some people can't or won't do that.
Brian Atkins wrote and posted some excellent OCUM/DFM interaction examples that use PowerShell for making ZAPI calls. His post is here: https://communities.netapp.com/docs/DOC-25414 This also works with Linux or Windows and requires no customization on either the WFA server or the OCUM server. This is the most portable / supportable method in my opinion.
