Python on Netapp Filers

Dear All,

 

I am trying out for some automation with Python, as i am new to Python  i would like to know the procedure in order to write python scripts.

Since we are implementing NetApp Cluster mode and we need to migate whole data from 7 moe to C mode.

 

In source we have many shares and which will take a lot of time to create all CIFS shares manually in destination.

so need your help on it to create cifs shares by using script.

 

Which API/tools to be used for ontap version 9.2/later Cluster mode .

How to install the tool/API, how to invoke a script from the management server.

 

Much appriciated if some one help me on this.

Thank you in advance.

 

Thanks,

Raviteja

Re: Python on Netapp Filers

Hello,

 

I think creating dedicated migration scripts isn't good idea, especialy if those scripts would need to work with production data.

 

If I were you, I would try 7Mode Migration Tool (https://www.netapp.com/us/documentation/7-mode-transition-tool.aspx). It can move whole configuration from 7mode to cDOT automatically, move the data using SnapMirror healht checks, and more.

 

Good luck with the migration.
