I have connected to one of my vservers running on a cDot cluster version 8.2.3 p6,
as the following:
Connect-NcController <vservername> -Credential $mycred,
And I received a message saying that I'm connected.
After that, I have tried to run many commands, such as get-navol, get-naqtree and many more,
And I have received the following message everytime:
Get-NaVol : Value in $global:CurrentNaController is not of type NetApp.Ontapi.Filer.NaController
At line:1 char:1
+ Get-NaVol -Name <volname>
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: ( [Get-NaVol], ArgumentException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ControllerNotSpecified,DataONTAP.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.Volume.GetNaVol
Do I have to specify the controller name although i'm at the vserver level?
Even when I do, I get the following error:
et-NaVol : Incorrect credentials for <vservername>.
At line:1 char:1
+ Get-NaVol -Name vmis -Controller <vservername>
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (<vservername>:NaController) [Get-NaVol], NaAuthException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.Volume.GetNaVol
How come the credentials are incorrect if I'm already connected to the vserver?
Does someone know what is the issue?
Thanks a lot!!
In addition to using NC commands, use connect-nccontroller to connect to the cluster, not a vserver. You can use it with -vserver to tunnel commands to a vserver, although I find that rarely necessary. Once you have a cluster connection object, any cmdlet that needs a vserver will generally have a -vserver switch you can use then.
$cluster = connect-nccontroller <your cluster> -cred $cred get-NCVol -Name <volname>
