Hi all, 


Main objective is to capture the old SVM configuration to the new svm's

(any help would be appreciated, currently I am facing issue in basic connectivity from redhat linux system to my netapp Ontap machine.) 
  

Have setup new ansible server(controller server) to work with netapp ontap system.
I am able to reach the netapp normally from the server via ssh, but when I am running the playbook on my ansible machine the ontap is not reachable. It's going till login prompt then it's unreachable.

 

PLAYBOOK: svm_connectivity_check_basic.yml *******************************************************************************************************************************************************
1 plays in svm_connectivity_check_basic.yml

PLAY [netapp_hosts] ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Just so you know on above I am able to access the NetApp machine if i directly try to access like this
"ssh user@server_name", but having issues only when I try to access it while using any ansible module in my playbook.
