Unexpected error running NetAppDocs script




I get the following error when I am trying to run a collection script for a customer.  Please let me know if you've come across this before and if there's a solution.


Below are the commands I entered and the associated error.

This is a NetApp internal tool.


I believe the storage-disk-get-iter API is new as of DOT 8.1.


Does anyone have an older version of NetappDocs that doesn't call that API? 


Since this is internal, I can't see, but let me ask you this.. what are you trying to accomplish and maybe I can assist?


^^ -

Netappdocs module is something new to me.. Is that something internal?  I've never seen that before so I can't assist with the troubleshooting
