Perl ZAPI DFM Workflow example - Create CIFS share on vFiler, No SSH on DFM server needed!!


Workflow for creating storage for a CIFS share, setting up the share, setting up a secondary volume on a different controller, creating a Dataset with a Protection Policy of "DR Mirror", adding both the primary and the secondary volumes to the dataset as nodes, creating a resource group (if it doesn't exist), and adding the primary volume to the group (for chargeback).


DFM commands are written in Perl and use the NMSDK perl modules to talk to ZAPI on the DFM server.  Does not require SSH, but does require Credentials for the DFM server to be added.  Can't "Test" DFM credentials in WFA 1.1.1 without SSH.  Plug them in and "test" by executing the workflow.


Built for WFA 1.1.1.
