api vserver tunneling

PHILIPPE_MESLINOBS

I'm new in API development, and ... development

 

I have to develop a web portal to do some provisionning in a vserver. 

 

With zexplore, i succeed to do queries till i'm at cluster level, but when i want to do some within a vserver, it fails.

 

message is 'Vserver API missing vserver parameter.' errno='13006'

 

my query is : 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<netapp xmlns="http://www.netapp.com/filer/admin" version="1.110">
<qtree-create>
<export-policy>default</export-policy>
<mode>755</mode>
<oplocks>Enabled</oplocks>
<qtree>qtt</qtree>
<security-style>unix</security-style>
<volume>VOL_01</volume>
</qtree-create>
</netapp>

 

I guess i need to specify the vserver i want to access to, but how ...

 

I succeeded to use the vserver_tunnel.py to do something, but this is not the way I intend to.

 

 

Perhaps i'm on the wrong way, but I would like not  to use third party language like perl, python .., but build on the fly and send xml request directly to the filer

 

Any help ?

Hello @PHILIPPE_MESLINOBS,

 

Are you manually creating the XML for ZAPI?  If so, you need to have a vfiler definition in the opening XML tag:

 

<netapp xmlns="http://www.netapp.com/filer/admin" version="1.110" vfiler="svm_name">


If you're using one of the SDKs, then you need to use the "set_vfiler" method for the language of your choice.  Here is an example using Python:

 

from NaServer import *

server = NaServer("your.cluster", 1, 110)
server.set_admin_user("username", "password")
server.set_vfiler("svm name")

 

If you don't *want* to talk directly to ZAPI, then I'd recommend checking out API Services and/or NetApp Service Level Manager.  Both have REST APIs and use JSON.

 

Hope that helps.
