Communication problem with Openstack Cinder and NetAPP FC driver


Hi to all.

I'm trying to connect Openstack to NetApp Storage Ontap using FC protocol. We have a Brocade 300 Switch. Here is the config used in Cinder :


zoning_mode = fabric
enabled_backends = ontap-fc

volume_backend_name = ontap-fc
volume_driver = cinder.volume.drivers.netapp.common.NetAppDriver
netapp_server_hostname =
netapp_server_port = 80
netapp_transport_type = http
netapp_storage_protocol = fc
netapp_storage_family = ontap_cluster
netapp_login = admin
netapp_password = *****
netapp_vserver = FC_01
max_over_subscription_ratio = 1.0
reserved_percentage = 5


fc_fabric_names = fabricA


fc_fabric_address =
fc_fabric_user = admin
fc_fabric_password = *****
principal_switch_wwn = 21:05:01:a1:37:ac:2c:11


i noticed that error:
ERROR cinder.volume.manager [req-d3437505-c106-45a3-b377-2cfcf5ce4d82 - - - - -] Failed to initialize driver.: NetAppDriverException: No pools are available for provisioning volumes. Ensure that the configuration option netapp_pool_name_search_pattern is set correctly.


Update driver status failed: (config name ontap-fc) is uninitialized.

Manager for service cinder-volume localdomain.local@ontap-fc is reporting problems, not sending heartbeat. Service will appear "down".


Any ideas to resolve this issue ??
