Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo issue

mark_schuren

Hi PoSH community. I'm a bit stuck with this cmdlet using Toolkit Version 3.0.1:

Get-NaFcAdapter | ?{$_.AdapterType -match "initiator"} | Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo | fc

^^ this usually gives exactly the info I need (FC disk/tape adapter- and SFP-Info).

However, the same cmdlet throws ugly errors when the connected NaController has one or more FC adapter(s) connected to a FC switch (e.g. a Fabric MetroCluster node or just a single FC link into a tape SAN):

Get-NaFcAdapter -Controller $Controller | ?{$_.AdapterType -match "initiator"} | Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo

Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo : Fehler im XML-Dokument (1,543).

Bei Zeile:1 Zeichen:106

+ Get-NaFcAdapter -Controller $Controller | ?{$_.AdapterType -match "initiator"} | Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo <<<<

    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (filer2:NaController) [Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo], InvalidOperationException

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.StorageAdapter.GetNaStorageAdapterInfo

Is this a known bug?

Hi Mark,

Have you tried this with the latest version of the Toolkit (version 3.1, http://support.netapp.com/NOW/download/tools/powershell_toolkit/)?

Mark,

I was trying to look into this in my lab, but i'm unable to see what your seeing..  Are you saying that if you run the same cmdlet with -controller $controller it throws an error ?

Can you show me what normal output looks like?

^^ THAT WORKS FINE and returns the expected object ^^

Now I do the same thing against a different filer (which has an FC switch connected to 0a – for tape access):

So essentially the cmdlet (or the API) throws an unexpected error „InvalidOperation“…

To make it a bit easier, the SYSCONFIG-A for the second system shows:

Ever seen this before? Is this an ONTAP (API) problem, or a bug in the PS Toolkit?

Ha - Mark, I'm even more confused now.. 🙂

So, are you not having an issue with the fcadapter cmdlet?  Let's get that out of the way..

I'm not sure what i'm looking at now 😞

mark_schuren

Just take a normal Netapp filer (ONTAP 8.1.x), which has at least one FC storage HBA. Let’s say adapter name is 0a.

FIRST:

Do a

Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo -Name 0a

This returns the object you mention (a single line of output - which IS GOOD!).

( To see the whole object use Get-NaStorageAdapterInfo -Name 0a | fc )

THEN:

plug a cable the same FC adapter and connect it to a brocade fibrechannel switch.

Repeat the above command – and bam you get the error…

Yes, update from Toolkit from 3.0.1 to 3.1.0 fixes the issue.

Thanks for the hint!

So, i was having more issues with this cmdlet.

All the properties are embedded it looks like

So, for example, I was only able to get certain properties doing this

get-nafcadapter | ? {$_.adapterstatus -eq "online"} | Select @{E={(get-nastorageadapterinfo $_.adaptername).adapterdetailinfo.adapterfc.adapterfcinfo.fclinkrate};N="link rate"}

If I do it any other way, I get

AdapterDetailInfo
