Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hello

I've read the infoscale ansible guide https://sort.veritas.com/public/infoscale/ansible/linux/docs/Infoscale7.4.2_Ansible_Support_Linux_Gu... and wanted to configure a diskgroup and volumes using the templates plublished by @matthewyee https://github.com/VeritasOS/infoscale_ansible

It is my understanding that we can deploy any of the following product options using the install (yum), and license modules

ENTERPRISE,AVAILABILITY,STORAGE,orFOUNDATION.

I had already installed infoscale so I did not use this option / playbook, I only modified the following templates from the github repo. I have not configured a cluster, and I only have two disks assigned to this server, sdb, and sdc.

[root@ansible infoscale_ansible]# cat roles/infoscale/tasks/create_dg_vol.yml

[root@ansible infoscale_ansible]# cat roles/infoscale/tasks/create_dg_vol.yml
---
- name: Facters
  veritas_infoscale:
    module: site_facters
  register: facts
- name: Create DG, Volume
  veritas_infoscale:
    module: vxvm_dgvolfs
    state: present
    dg1:
      dgname: dg1
      dgtype: shared
      disks: ['sdb','sdc']
      volinfo:
        - - testvol1
          - 1g
          - layout=concat
      seednode: 172.16.209.51
      taginfo: null
    facters: "{{ groups['all'] |map('extract', hostvars, ['facts','infoscale_facts'])| select()|list }}"

I removed fss

 

I kept dgtype as shared even though the documentation says you can leave it blank if you're not created a shared diskgroup which I am not since I do not have a cluster.

I modified the disks to be disks: ['sdb','sdc']

I modified the volume to create to a a single volume of 1GB

I modified the seednode: 172.16.209.51

I execute the play

 

[root@ansible infoscale_ansible]# ansible-playbook infoscale_dg_create.yml -v

The documentation doesn't state whether the disks should be setup or not, but I would have hoped it would do this since the point of using an automated tool is, well, automation....

 

I setup the disks manually and rerun the play.

I now notice the two disks are shown as free \"free_disks\": [\"sdb\", \"sdc\"]

The result on the server however remains the same.

Re: Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hi @RiaanBadenhorst ,

Are you using an inventory file? Can you please post your ansible hosts file as well?

Under the seednode key, could you please enter the hostname of the target? As well, please make sure your /etc/hosts file reflects the host/ip mapping.

Re: Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hi Matthew

Yes, I've used your template and updated the files that believe needed to be updated (btw I've added another node now and configured a cluster)

[root@ansible infoscale_ansible]# cat inventory/hosts
[is1]
172.16.209.51
172.16.209.52
[is1:vars]
ansible_ssh_user=root

    facters: "{{ groups['all'] |map('extract', hostvars, ['facts','infoscale_facts'])| select()|list }}"

The result is however the same

Re: Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hi,

It seems seedname given is different than hostname:

hostname: infoscale_01 
seednode: infoscale-01

 Can you please recheck?

Re: Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hi,

I noticed that an reconfigured the cluster to match the hostnames i.e. and I also reran the play.

I see that it will now find and setup the disks, but when I try and create a non-shared diskgroup it complains.

The guide says "Enter shared if you want to configure a shared type of disk group or leave the keyword empty."

I tried

dgtype:

and

dgtype: ''

but both result in the error above.

Re: Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hi,

Please use dgtype: non-shared for non shared and 'shared' for shared as of now. 

This needs to be corrected in documentation and to be handled in module subsequently. Next module upload will have this fix.

 

Thanks

Re: Infoscale Ansible Queries

Hi Vineet,

Thanks, I'll try this and let you know.
