Hi everybody,

I try to use Netapp Plugin for ansible and Get this error:

Ansible netapp NetApp API failed. Reason - Unexpected error:UnicodeEncodeError('latin-1',

 

Can anybody help me?

 

This is my inventory:

[na2244]
na2244.qs.de ansible_ssh_pass=netapp123 ansible_ssh_user=admin

 

and this is the playbook:

That looks like an error caused by doing a copy-n-paste from a website - maybe a netapp.io article?  Spacing, indentation, EOL chars - YAML is sensitive to all of this (and more!).

 

Support for the NetApp Ansible modules is through Slack - channel (thepub#configurationmgmt channel).

 

Suggest you go to netapp.io and click on the Slack Invite icon on the top right and then post your questions in the above mentioned channel.  You'll get your answers rather fast there 🐵
