Automation

can anyone guide on how to build a ansible playbook for cluster health check including,

 

Hardware faults on Nodes, Shelfs, Disks, Ports, PSU, Fan, Motherboard, Connectivity and Configuration

Event logs - Find out critical errors and highlight the same on report, check on repeated warnings

Re: Automation

Hi Vishal,

 

Ansible is not designed to be a reporting tool for Hardware faults on Nodes, Shelfs, Disks, Ports, PSU, Fan, Motherboard etc. IE you can't manage the configuration state for a hardware fault. You could run a series of commands to enumerate hardware environment issues. See:

 

https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/na_ontap_command_module.html#na-ontap-command-module 

 

Active IQ is designed to monitor your storage clusters which will detects and alert on such hardware related events.

Re: Automation

Hi Matt,

 

Thank you for the response,

you are right, so you mean to say I should run set of ad-hoc commands to get the status and produce a report using those outputs.

 

Actually I am spending lot of time running health check commands on daily basis, which I need to automate, so I thought there can be some playbooks in ansible which can automate. 

 

And AcitveIQ is dependent on asup messages, which is not showing the present status/alerts of the system, my plan is to run this script twice a day and get the report generated. 

 

any alternative like shell script can get this done I think, do you have any idea on the same?
