volume-options-list-info

I have to use the Get-NaVolOption command to retrieve the parameters of a volume.
I would like to know the description of each of the parameters that contains the command output. The output is {volume-options-list-info}. Where can I find all the documentation that describes what they are for example:
If I run the Get-Help command it tells me that:
OUTPUT
DataONTAP.Types.Volume.VolumeOptionInfo
without telling me what the output properties and their possible values are.

Re: volume-options-list-info

Hi,

 

This is for cDot (nc) but the logic is same for 7-mode (na).


Get-NaVol or GetNcVol = Gives the meta-data paremeters for the volume, such as state,size,available etc


Get-NaVolOptions or GetNcVolOptions = Gives different settings that are available to a volume such as gurantee,nosnap,fractional reserve etc.

 

 

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-NcVol -Volume vol_name

Name State TotalSize Used Available Ddupe Aggregate Vserver
---- ----- --------- ---- --------- ------ -------- -------
vol_name online 1.0 GB 5% 966.1 MB False agg_name svm_name

 


PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-NcVolOption -VserverContext svm_name -Name vol_name

Name NcController Value
---- ------------ -----

I don't know how to get the same info pulled from Get-Na/NcHelp command, help only ouputs the 'API' info used for that PowerShell command.


Take a look at this, if you find the info you are looking for.

Thanks!

Re: volume-options-list-info

I look for the documentation that describes each of the options that are obtained by making a Get-NaVolOption.

 

Re: volume-options-list-info

While not specific to the PSTK, this link to the manual page for the volume family of commands (below) will show you a description of the volume options and list their possible values. 

 

https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMP1196979/html/man1/na_vol.1.html

 

For example, the "create_ucode" option: 

 

create_ucode on | off

Setting this option to on forces UNICODE format directories to be created by default, both from NFS and CIFS. By default, it is set to off, in which case all directories are created in pre-4.0 format, and the first CIFS access will convert it to UNICODE format. The default setting is off.
