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.

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.
