I'm new to DataOntap and NetApp in general, so I please bear with my ignorance. I would like to be able to manage my company's filers (both 7-mode and clustered) using the DataOntap Powershell Toolkit, which I have downloaded and imported. My problem is that I am unable to connect to our filers over HTTPS.
These are my configured HTTP options:
httpd.log.format common (value might be overwritten in takeover)
httpd.timeout 300 (value might be overwritten in takeover)
httpd.timewait.enable off (value might be overwritten in takeover)
I have verified the following:
Port 443 is open between me and the filers in question
SSL Admin is enabled on the filers
I have the root administrator credentials
I have tried adding my laptop's name (resolvable via DNS forward and reverse) to the hosts.equiv file, but that did not help
I have tried disabling the httpd.admin.hostsequiv.enable option, but that did not help
I have tried adding my laptop's hostname to httpd.admin.access, but that did not help
I am able to connect using HTTP, but I need to be able to connect using HTTPS. When using HTTP, I get the following:
I'm not sure that RPC is out of the question, but I assume it will require random high ports, which I'm guessing will be hard to get by security. (I'm a Windows guy in a Unix environment, and I'm trying to prove the worth of the DataOntap PowerShell Toolkit to myself, and potentially others. If I introduce the fun with RPC high ports, I think I will be shooting myself in the foot.)
I got the same error when I specified "root" user in-line:
I'm a windows guy in a unix world as well, but take a look at some of the scripts we developed for data ontap with powershell, not to mention WFA Is built on it. I can wipe the floor with the unix guys compared to the scripting of data ontap. That's not a question.
what version of OS are you running and toolkit version? get-natoolkitversion
(gwmi -class win32_operatingsystem).caption
I'm not sure what the issue on the connection part is just yet.
We have the storage in untrsuted zone, we could discover it by SNMP, but failed to connect by HTTPS.do we need to open port/s between the Management server and the Storage in order to connect directly, or we can do something on the Gateways? is there anyway to avoid openning ports between two untrusted zones?
