Given the quick and enthusiastic response to the Netapp Powershell Toolkit I'm surprised to see no scripts in here. Mine's pretty basic but at least I get to be first!
This script will simply pull out details of all snapshots over a specified age from a list of filers and send an HTML formatted email to a list of recipients. Obviously it can easily be scheduled for regular reporting. Thanks to fjohn for the snapshot code - as a Powershell newbie I'd probably have struggled with that.
Hello, Sri. The scripts in this community area based on the Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit, so they may only be run on Windows. To accomplish something similar from UNIX, you would need to use the NetApp Manageability SDK with perl or Java, but it would probably take a little more effort to get there!
Ed, your script works great for what I need. Thank you for sharing! Have you considered a snippet of code inside to disregard offline volumes? When I run the script I get "Get-NaSnapshot : The specified volume <name> is offline." along with a few other lines of Powershell error text. I haven't learned to use Powershell well enough yet to be doing my own coding, but trying to learn. Would this be difficult to do?
