Issues with ansible netapp module na_ontap_volume to create volume on Ontap

Hi Netapp Support Team,

 

I have been trying to use ansible netapp module na_ontap_volume to create volume on Ontap. Tried to scenarios, both failing with different error messages.

Could you please help me with this, don’t what’s going wrong here?

 

Scenario 1:

 

[ansible@server ~]$ cat ansible_vol.yaml

hostname: 'x.x.x.x'

username: 'xxxxxx'

password: 'xxxxxxxx'

vserver: 'xxxx_xxx_xxx'

aggr: 'xxxx_xxxxx_xxxx'

vol_name: 'ansibleVol'

[ansible@server ~]$ cat volume_lifecycle.yaml

  collections:

    - netapp.ontap

  name: Volume Lifecycle

  vars_files:

    /home/ansible/ansible_vol.yaml

  tasks:

  - name: Volume Create

    na_ontap_volume:

      state: present

      name: “{{ vol_name }}”

      vserver: “{{ vserver }}”

      aggregate_name: “{{ aggr }}”

      size: 10

      hostname: “{{ hostname }}”

      username: “{{ username }}”

      password: “{{ password }}”

      https: True

      validate_certs: false

[ansible@server ~]$ ansible-playbook volume_lifecycle.yaml --extra-vars "@ansible_vol.yaml"

You'll get help faster through the Slack channel - go to netapp.io and click on the "Slack" icon (top-right) to get the invite.  Ansible is supported through Slack - on the #configurationmgmt channel.

 

Try adding "  | int" to the end of your size: setting perhaps?  

 

size: “{{ size | int }}”

Re: Issues with ansible netapp module na_ontap_volume to create volume on Ontap

Thanks for your response. I will move this communication to Slack channel

 

However, I already tried size: “{{ size | int}}” but no luck. See below.

 

[ansible@server ~]$ cat volume_lifecycle.yaml

collections:
- netapp.ontap

vars_files:
/home/ansible/ansible_vol.yaml
tasks:
- name: Volume Create
na_ontap_volume:
state: present
name: “{{ vol_name }}”
vserver: “{{ vserver }}”
aggregate_name: “{{ aggr }}”
size: “{{ size | int}}”
size_unit: gb
policy: default
junction_path: “/{{ vol_name }}”
hostname: “{{ hostname }}”
username: “{{ username }}”
password: “{{ password }}”
https: True
validate_certs: false
[ansible@server ~]$ cat ansible_vol.yaml
hostname: 'x.x.x.x'
username: 'xxxxxxx'
password: 'xxxxxx@xxx'
vserver: 'xxxxxxxx'
aggr: 'xxx_xxx_xxxx'
vol_name: 'ansibleVol'
size: 10
[ansible@server ~]$
