Provision Storage on Dataset workflow inputs

Input parameter

Description

Required

configuration name

Specifies a configuration group defined in the module configuration
Valid value: NetApp

Yes

storage

Provision a new member into the effective primary node of a data set.
The following sample XML details the storage input parameter:

<storage>
  <dataset-name-or-id>test1</dataset-name-or-id>
  <size>21000000</size>
  <name>vol3</name>
</storage>

Yes


dataset-name-or-id

Specifies the name of the dataset whose member are provisioned

Yes


name

Specifies the name of the dataset whose member are provisioned
For example, if this is a NAS dataset, the provisioning policy associated with the primary node of the dataset is of type nas, then this name corresponds to the qtree created. If this is a SAN data set, such as the provisioning policy associated with the primary node of the dataset is of type san, then this name corresponds to the LUN or volume that is provisioned as part of this request. The length of this string cannot exceed 255 characters. If this tag is not provided, a name for storage to be provisioned is deduced automatically, and have the following format: Storage yyyyMMddHHmmss

No


size

Specifies the size for the dataset member
The value is in bytes.
Range: [BAOOAMM201103:1..2^63-1]

Yes

module configuration items

Specifies module configuration elements

Yes

username

Specifies the NetApp DataFabric Manager logon user name

Conditional; required if dynamic targeting is used

password

Specifies the NetApp DataFabric Manager logon password

Conditional; required if dynamic targeting is used

encryption type

Determines whether the logon password is encrypted

Valid values: Base64, plain

Note

This is provided only when you use the password parameter.

Conditional

protocol

Specifies the communication protocol used by the adapter

Valid values: http (default), https

Note

This input is only used if dynamic targeting is specified.

No

port

Specifies the port on which NetApp DataFabric Manager is enabled

Default values: 8088 for http protocol; 8488 for https protocol

No

target

When you use dynamic targeting: Specifies the host name or IP address of the NetApp DataFabric Manager

When you do not use dynamic targeting: Designates a specific target (name of the NetApp DataFabric Manager server where the operation will be performed) that has been defined in the adapter configuration

Valid value: the same value as was specified for the name attribute of the config element in the adapter configuration. If this tag is left empty, the request will be executed on the first defined adapter configuration.

For example, the target is 02 in the sample adapter configuration:

<configs>
  <config name="02">
    <target>172.19.224.103</target>
    <user-name>root</user-name>
    <password>bmcbmc</password>
    <protocol>http</protocol>
    <port>8088</port>
  </config>
</configs>

Conditional

Provision Storage on Dataset workflow outputs

Output

Description

success status

Indicates whether the workflow finished successfully
Valid values: success, failure

status message

Provides a workflow-specific explanation for the value of success status

output

Contains required output
