Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2

rajeshr

Hi PowerShell community,

Glad to announce availability of Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit Version 3.2.

The Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit can be downloaded from the NetApp support site: http://support.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/powershell_toolkit/

Thanks

Rajesh.R

 

Version 3.2 release notes:

Major features

  • Data ONTAP 8.3 API support

Toolkit 3.2 includes API coverage for Data ONTAP 8.3.  This includes 126 new cmdlets and 31 cmdlets with new parameters. There are several categories introduced in Data ONTAP 8.3 and Toolkit 3.2 introduces two of them, namely MetroCluster and Storage Pool.

 

The following clustered Data ONTAP categories contain new cmdlets:

  • aggr (16 cmdlets)
  • cifs (13 cmdlets)
  • metrocluster (new category - 26 cmdlets)
  • net (48 cmdlets)
    • ipspace (4 cmdlets)
    • firewall (10 cmdlets)
    • failover group (4 cmdlets)
    • subnet (5 cmdlets)
    • port broadcast domain (7 cmdlets)
    • route (4 cmdlets)
    • arp (5 cmdlets)
    • ndp (9 cmdlets)
  • storage pool (new category - 8 cmdlets)
  • snapmirror (1 cmdlets)
  • vserver (7 cmdlets)

Enhancements

  • Get-NaDiskwill use storage-disk-get-iter when available.
  • ConvertTo-NaVhdx will create a fully-allocated dynamic VHDX instead of a fixed-size VHDX.
  • Invoke-NcSysstat now works with Data ONTAP 8.3
  • Fibre channel port information has been added to the output of Get-NaHostFcAdapter.

Fixes

  • ConvertTo-NaVmdk could fail when connecting to a vserver management LIF that is also a CIFS data LIF and a network name was used.
  • ConvertTo-NaVmdk could fail when connecting to a vserver by name when DNS round robin is used.
  • Set-NcTime would fail for Data ONTAP 8.2 and higher.
  • Reset-NcCifsPassword did not have a default parameter set.
  • Get-NaVol could fail in the vfiler context.

Hi,

 

Is connect-NcController -RPC an option yet?

 

Thnx,

Leon

vinith

Hello Leon,

 

connect-NcController -RPC  options is not supported as RPC based connectivity option is not supported in C-mode, its supported only in 7-mode.

 

LEON_IC_UVA

Hi Vinith,

 

Ok. Why is RPC dropped in cDOT? 

 

 

TNAE

Quick question. Are the new cmdlets also working for Ontap 8.2? fe get-ncaggrspace

Aparajita

Hi TNAE,

The new cmdlets introduced in Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.2 work only on Data ONTAP 8.3. They will not work with older versions of Data ONTAP.

In the particular case of Get-NcAggrSpace, you can get the same information on DataONTAP 8.2 by using the AggrSpaceAttributes property of Get-NcAggr cmdlet. You can define a function like

Function Get-NcAggrSpace-SN($inp) {
     $res = Get-NcAggr $inp
    foreach ($a in $res) {
            Write-Output Name: $a.Name
            Write-Output $a.AggrSpaceAttributes
    }
}

and now use "Get-NcAggrSpace-SN" as a command to get the same information for older Data ONTAP versions as "Get-NcAggrSpace" gives on DataONTAP 8.3

Hi, 

where can i get the release notes for the 3.2 Tollkit ?

i want to see what is new.

 

Thanks,

Tomer.

rajeshr

Import the DataONTAP module and type "Show-NcHelp". This takes few minutes and opens up a html page in the default browser. A "Release Notes" link must be available in there.

tomers

Hi, 

Thank you for the replay.

Cant i read it without installing ?

 

Tomer.

rajeshr

Of course, you can read it from here as well - "Check out "Making the Most of Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit" for more details on the new features".

Hi Ravi,

 

This (output of Get-Command) looks like some of the sub-modules could not be successfully loaded. Can you share what command you used to load the DataONTAP module and your PowerShell version?

 

Thanks,

Aparajita

Have you tried loading the module using it's full path?

 

Something like 'Import-Module "C:\Program Files(x86)\NetApp\Data ONTAP\DataONTAP" or 'Import-Module "C:\Program Files(x86)\NetApp\Data ONTAP\DataONTAP.psm1"'?

RaviTeja1988

i tryed it, no use. Even help also not working.

Possible bug with command: Add-NcFileDirectorySecurityPolicyTask
-------------

I am trying to automate adding CIFS SACLs (for auditing).

 

The command:

PS C:\Powershell> Add-NcFileDirectorySecurityPolicyTask -Name SecPolicyTask_ResetEveryoneFullControl -VserverContext <some Vserver> -Path "<some path>" -SecurityType "ntfs" -NtfsMode "propagate" -NtfsSecurityDescriptor ntfssd

 

Always throws up this error:
----------------------------
Add-NcFileDirectorySecurityPolicyTask : Invalid value specified for "ntfs-sd" element within "file-directory-security-policy-task-add": " ".
At line:1 char:38
+ Add-NcFileDirectorySecurityPolicyTask <<<< -Name SecPolicyTask_ResetEveryoneFullControl -VserverContext <some Vserver> -Path "<some path>" -SecurityType "ntfs" -NtfsMode "propaga
te" -NtfsSecurityDescriptor ntfssd
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (10.68.125.55:NcController) [Add-NcFileDirectorySecurityPolicyTask], EINVALIDINPUTERROR
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.C.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.FileDirectorySecurity.AddNcFileDirectorySecurityPolicyTask
--------------------

The equivalent ssh command runs without error:

 

vserver security file-directory policy task add -vserver <some Vserver> -policy-name SecPolicyTask_ResetEveryoneFullControl -path "<some path>" -security-type ntfs -ntfs-mode propagate -ntfs-sd ntfssd -index-num 1

 

Also, is there a way to get the PowerShell equivalent of:

"set -privilege advanced"
"vserver security file-directory policy apply"

This is indeed a bug in 3.2 ... Please upgrade to the latest (3.2.1) version from http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/powershell_toolkit/; the issue has been fixed. Regarding accessing priviledged commands, there is no equivalent of "set -privilege advanced". Some advanced commands are available as cmdlets - they require no special permissions/setting for execution. For those which do not have equivalent cmdlets, check out the Invoke-NcSsh command. That might serve as a viable workaround. Hope this helps, Aparajita

Thanks, Aparajita. Really appreciate your looking into this issue.
