Using powershell to make NFS exports after making flexclone
2012-11-14 01:48 AM
For a customer of mine I need to make a script that dos the following
We have a master NFS datastore. To create classes we need to "clone the nfs datastore" and make new nfs datastores of in inside a VMware environment.
The cusotmer is using a C mode ontap environment. And we need to work in a vserver environment.
the script I have is working for 95%, only making a NFS export of the flexclone volume is not working....
her the script I use
= ConvertTo-SecureString "MyPassword" -AsPlainText -Force
= New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList "MyUser",$password
## Add the DATA ONTAP Module
## Connecto to netapp filer
Connect-NcController -Name CMODENETAPP-Credential $cred
## Create new snapshot on master and give it the Teacher AD name and instance number
New-NcSnapshot -TargetName "master" -SnapName "00" -VserverContext "MyvServer"
## Create new flexclones based on MasterLUN and instance snapshot
New-NcVolClone -ParentVolume "master" -CloneVolume "WA01" -ParentSnapshot "00" -VserverContext "MyVserver"
then I want to use
Add-NcNfsExport cmdlet to create the nfs export point for the newly created volume WA01 in my case but I get an error telling me that the namesppace is incorect..... anybody here that can help me to finish this task or give me an example??
Wen I do this via ssh or via the manual in the interface its working, it does not work with powershell/
Thanks for your help..

Can you send an example of the cmdlet you are using that isn't working? I use Add-NaNfsExport in the following manner:
$path = "/vol/<volname>/<qtreename>"
Add-NaNfsExport -Persistent:$true -Path $path -ReadWrite @('192.168.10.0/24','192.168.28.0/24') -Root @('192.168.10.0/24','192.168.28.0/24') | Out-Null
