Something wrong with Ansible setup?

benpielaml

Trying to create my first playbook and I am getting the following error on a volume create:

 

File "/tmp/ansible_na_cdot_volume_payload_XLT_EQ/__main__.py", line 279, in create_volume

    enable_tunneling=True)

  File "/data/readwrite/ansible/netapp/lib/python2.7/site-packages/netapp_lib/api/zapi/zapi.py", line 290, in invoke_successfully

    raise NaApiError(code, msg)

NaApiError: NetApp API failed. Reason - 15661:entry doesn't exist

 

"msg": "Error provisioning volume test1 of size 20971520: NetApp API failed. Reason - 15661:entry doesn't exist"

 

Does this mean I am missing an entry for one of the variables in the na_cdot_volume module?

If you're just starting out I suggest you use the na_ontap_* modules - they are the latest and contiously updated with each release of the Ansible distribution.  Also, read the Ansible 5-part article by David Blackwell on netapp.io and you'll be off and running.

Gotta question on the basic "na_ontap_volume" module.  I see that I can make changes to existing variables like size and run the playbook and the volume size is changed.  What about the junction-path?  I ran the playbook first without the junction-path variable set and the volume was created.  Then, I added the junction_path variable and the volume did not mount. If I create a new volume with the junction_path variable, it does mount.  Is this the way it is supposed to work?

Hi Ben,

 

You need to online the volume before it can be mounted. I've posted a playbook example here:

Hope that helps

Hi Ben,

 

Here is a basic example of creating a mounted volume...

 

---
- hosts: localhost
  gather_facts: false
  name: Create Volume
  vars:
    login: &login
      hostname: cluster1.testlab.local
      username: ansible
      password: N0tMyP@ssw0rd!
      https: true
      validate_certs: false
    vserver: vserver1
    volume: volume1
    aggregate: node1_aggr1
    size: 10
  tasks:
  - name: Create Volume
    na_ontap_volume:
      state: present
      is_online: yes
      name: "{{ volume }}"
      aggregate_name: "{{ aggregate }}"
      size: "{{ size }}"
      size_unit: gb
      space_guarantee: none
      policy: default
      percent_snapshot_space: 0
      vserver: "{{ vserver }}"
      volume_security_style: unix
      wait_for_completion: true
      junction_path: "{{ '/' + volume }}"
      <<: *login
