API version for clusterd ONTAP 9.4

chibata

I use "system-get-version" to check my ontap version, it comes to "NetApp Release 9.4P1".

and I downloaded netapp-manageability-sdk-9.5, in tool zedi, there are many API version to choose.

Which one should I use?

In ZEDI GUI connect to cluster and it will automatically connect to correct API vesion.

If you want to check API version use API "system-get-ontapi-version"

thanks a lot!!! 

And I have another problem. We have many netapp storage machines and they have different ontap version from 8.x to 9.5, if I use SDK api version of 1.130, does it adapt to old ontap version like 8.x?

Any response would be helpful, thank you a lot again.

No. You have to choose correct version for each connection. Generally, I have a practice to having all version's connection in one file and use that file as python class.

Thank you it's a very good idea, but I have two questions.

First, before connected to the ontap, I can't get the correct api version but connect to ontap need input api version.

s = Naserver('host',1,140)
s.set_server_type()
s.set_transport_type()
s.set_port()
s.set_style()
s.set_admin_user()
s.set_vserver()

api = NaElement('system-get-ontapi-version')
xo = s.invoke_elem(api)

Second, one api's(like 'volume-create') parameters are different from a different version.

Like in 'volume-create', older api version doesn't have an input parameter 'space-slo'.

So when I change api version, do I need to change my whole code?

 

Would you mind sharing your different connection python class code demo?

 

Thank you a lot again, you really helped me!

get the output of api version and call same function from PY class. 

 

from NaServer import *

class Connection:
	
	def conn115(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 15)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s

	def conn121(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 21)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s	

	
	def conn111(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 11)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s

	def conn113(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 13)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s	


	
	def conn119(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 19)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s	
		
	def conn130(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 30)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s

	def conn132(node):
		filer_name = node
		
		s = NaServer(filer_name, 1 , 32)
		s.set_server_type("FILER")
		s.set_transport_type("HTTPS")
		s.set_port(443)
		s.set_style("LOGIN")
		s.set_admin_user("username", "password")
		return s
s = Connection.conn115(l)

Hope this will help you.
