Metrocluster switchover with python - is it possible?

Hi, guys!

 I'm looking a template, or example, to write a simple script that will make a switchover of metrocluster. I'm not sure, if it's possible at all, but maybe somebody have already done such task. Any comments or advises?

Re: Metrocluster switchover with python - is it possible?

Haven't tried it myself, but look at the "metrocluster-switchover" in the NetApp SDK documentation. I guess something like this should work:

 

import NaServer, NaElement

hostname = ''
username = ''
password = ''

zapi = SDK.NaServer(hostname, 1, 3)                                                                                           
zapi.set_server_type('FILER')                                                                                                       
zapi.set_transport_type('HTTPS')                                                                                                    
zapi.set_style('LOGIN')                                                                                                             
zapi.set_admin_user(username, password)
                                                                                     
request = SDK.NaElement('metrocluster-switchover')                                                                                       
request.child_add_string('simulate', 'true')  

response = zapi.invoke_elem(request)

 

This should simulate a switchover, but I warn again: haven't tried it myself.
