Dear PowerShell community,
We are pleased to announce the availability of NetApp PowerShell Toolkit 4.0!
This exciting release unifies all three of NetApp’s PowerShell toolkits into a single package, with support for SANtricity, Data ONTAP and the all-new Mars OS platform. We believe that combining the toolkits will provide a unified automation experience across NetApp’s storage platforms, and greatly simplify our PowerShell offerings with a single installation.
• Unified installation package, with each of the following as optional modules:
- SANtricity PowerShell Toolkit
- Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit
- Mars OS PowerShell Toolkit
• Full API support for clustered Data ONTAP 8.3.1
SANtricity PowerShell Toolkit:
The SANtricity PowerShell module contains over 100 cmdlets enabling the storage administration of NetApp E-Series storage systems and EF- Series all-flash arrays. The SANtricity PowerShell module leverages the NetApp SANtricity Web Services Proxy to provide a distributed management solution. Use cases range from simple volume or disk monitoring to complex environment setup and tear down. By providing a rich object model, the Toolkit provides the PowerShell scripter with a wide range of insight into the storage objects. Major features include:
• Creating/deleting volume groups and pools
• Creating/deleting volumes
• Creating/deleting mirror groups, snapshots, consistency groups, etc.
• Host configuration
• Health and performance monitoring
Pricing: There is no charge for the toolkit and no license key is required.
Dependencies: The toolkit requires NetApp SANtricity Web Services Proxy 1.2 or later: http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/eseries_webservices/1.2/
