I am trying to find out if there are any scripts available to automate CDot configuration.
My purpose of this script is for a refresh project, We have to configure new NAS locally , reconfigure after data copy and ship it to remote site.
Where do I start first to create customized scripting?
There are a number of options, you can use the Data ONTAP powershell toolkit to automate deployment and configuration assuming you are working in windows environment.
You can download it here:
Alternately if you working in a UNIX environment and you need to write scripts in Perl or Ruby you can download the NMSDK here:
However rather than developing "scripts" you might also consider developing workflows that can invoked via a REST API using OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA)
You can download WFA here:
WFA includes a number of example workflows to deploy vservers and provision NAS workloads. Optional content downloads are available via the automation store here:
You can also use API services
There are multiple options, your choice really depends on your requirements.
