Ansible modules and playbooks utilizing the Python API in the NetApp Manageability SDK
This utilizes custom Ansible modules built using the NetApp Manageability SDK (NMSDK). The playbooks aid in the provisioning and management of Clustered Data ONTAP and hopefully entire FlexPods.
Install the NetApp Manageability SDK
!!!Make sure to add the location of the NMSDK to your PYTHONPATH environment variable!!!
I've provided a Dockerfile in the repository to make it easier to get started with Ansible and the NetApp Manageability SDK. After installing Docker and downloading the NMSDK, run the following command from the same directory where you downloaded the nmsdk zip file.
docker build -t <image name> .
Once you've downloaded the ssl cert for the cluster, (See here for a more in-depth explanation for this.) run the following command to execute your playbook as a one-liner.
docker run -it -v <local ssl cert location>:/etc/ssl/certs -v <local dir for your playbook>:/ansible/playbooks <image name> <playbook name>
docker run -it -v $(pwd):/etc/ssl/certs -v /Users/jeorryb/images/ansible_nmsdk:/ansible/playbooks ansible-nmsdk nmsdk.yaml
