Hi @AndresPastrana 

 

Whilst I am not sure how to address your specific issue I wanted to let you know we have a Community Discord and there is an #Ansible channel that is actively used by customers, partners and Ansible savvy NetApp volunteers. So you may want to head over to there to check it out and ask your question there.

 

More info about our Discord is here, https://community.netapp.com/t5/Digital-Support/The-Official-NetApp-Discord/ba-p/170915/

Ansible expects a Linux OS when using plain SSH.  This is not the case for ONTAP.  We are providing a set of Ansible modules that are using ONTAP REST APIs or ZAPIs for older systems.  These APIs are running over HTTPS.  The collection is netapp.ontap and is available through Ansible Galaxy.

You don't set the host in the inventory as the ONTAP system, instead it needs to be a linux box (typically the host you run ansible from) and you specify the connection details for ONTAP in the playbook. There are some samples in this github repository: https://github.com/NetApp-Automation/ansible/tree/main/ontap.

or as Ross has said you can jump on the community discord and get more help there.

Sharing the playbook may help.

hello obasset,

 

below is the playbook :-

 

[root@fieslpstmgt01 ansible]# cat netapptest.yaml
-
name: Ontap REST API
hosts: 10.47.17.178
gather_facts: true
collections:
- netapp.ontap
vars:
admin_ip: 10.47.17.178
admin_username: ansibleadm
admin_password: *******
svm_name: HE5NETAPP8200CL1

login: &login
hostname: "{{ 10.47.17.178 }}"
username: "{{ ansibleadm }}"
password: "{{ ******* }}"
https: true
validate_certs: false
feature_flags:
trace_apis: true
tasks:
- name: run ontap REST API command as cluster admin - get version
na_ontap_restit:
<<: *login
api: cluster/software
query:
fields: version
register: result
- assert: {that: result.status_code==200, quiet: true}

Yes so looking at that it is likely as I suspected and @LaurentN mentioned. If you change the hosts line in the playbook to a linux host running all the pre-requisite python libraries (it can be the ansible host and specified as localhost) then it will likely work - though the hostname, username and password look a little odd - the bits inside the "{{ }}" should be the name of the variables, not the values - the variables are defined in admin_ip admin_username, admin_password - so those phrases should be in each of the login variables respectively.

I would start with 

hosts: localhost

and

hostname: 10.47.17.178
username: ansibleadm
password: *******

 

There are some cases where you would want to run on another linux box, but this is less frequent.
And David documented an example using an inventory file to identify a set of ONTAP systems, but this requires to use connection: local which brings some issues of its own.
