I’m working on creating a workflow to build SVM in our environment (by modifying "Create and configure NAS Storage Virtual Machine" certified workflow) and I have a quick question
Some of clusters are two nodes, some are four nodes and some (in future may be six or eight nodes).
When we create SVM, we create one data LIF for each node.
How would I prompt the user to enter LIF information (names, IP, gateway, netmask, etc) ?
I mean, is there any way so that wfa will prompt user to enter LIF information as many times as the number of nodes in the cluster ?
and for a four node cluster, WFA should prompt LIF information four times (again, one for each node).
So, based on the cluster selected from the dropdown menu, the “FORM” would change.

For SAN SVM where data LIF for each node is required starting IP is taken as input and next IP is autogenerated used in loop.
There is a sample workflow for this "Create and configure SAN Storage Virtual Machine" you can get more info from this workflow.

I have the following proposal:
This approach will not require any user interface changes, you need cluster information, so based on that you will loop through the nodes and create a lif per node.
Pre-requisites for the approach:
Please let me know if you face any issues.
