What is host type for cluster node in DFM server API


Hi all,

I am using DFM server API 5.1 to get filers, clusters, cluster-controllers(cluster nodes) from both 7-mode and cluster-mode environments.

I am using host-type filter to get this nodes separately. It is stated in the documentation that  host types can be - filer, vfiler, cluster, cluster-controller, vserver, agent, ossv and switch.

When I get data from clustered environment, I get cluster nodes and with host type filer, and with host type cluster-controller. And both results contain record - <host-type>filer</host-type>

Is this an expected behavior?





Looks like an expected behaviour.

Even I get host-type as filer for cluster-node.

Is there any way that we can find out whether result is filer for 7-mode or cluster-node for cluster-mode?
