Data Sources

Detailed Documentations for PowerMax Data Sources

powermax_host data source

Data source for reading Hosts in PowerMax array. PowerMax hosts systems are storage hosts that use storage system logical unit number (LUN) resources. A LUN is an identifier that is used for labeling and designating subsystems of physical or virtual storage

powermax_hostgroup data source

Data source for reading HostGroups in PowerMax array. PowerMax host groups are groups of PowerMax Hosts. see the host example for more information on hosts.

powermax_maskingview data source

Data source for reading Masking Views in PowerMax array. PowerMax masking views are a container of a storage group, a port group, and an initiator group, and makes the storage group visible to the host. Devices are masked and mapped automatically. The groups must contain some device entries.

powermax_port data source

Data source for reading ports in PowerMax array. A port typically refers to the interface that allows for connections between the PowerMax system and other devices.

powermax_portgroups data source

Data source for reading PortGroups in PowerMax array. PowerMax port groups contain director and port identification and belong to a masking view. Ports can be added to and removed from the port group. Port groups that are no longer associated with a masking view can be deleted. Note the following recommendations: Port groups should contain four or more ports. Each port in a port group should be on a different director. A port can belong to more than one port group. However, for storage systems running HYPERMAX OS 5977 or higher, you cannot mix different types of ports (physical FC ports, virtual ports, and iSCSI virtual ports) within a single port group

powermax_snapshot data source

Data source for a specific StorageGroup Snapshots in PowerMax array. PowerMax Snaphots is a local replication solution that is designed to nondisruptively create point-in-time copies (snapshots) of critical data.

powermax_snapshotpolicy data source

Data source for a specific Snapshot Policy in PowerMax array. PowerMax snapshot policy feature provides snapshot orchestration at scale (1,024 snaps per storage group). The resource simplifies snapshot management for standard and cloud snapshots.

powermax_storagegroup data source

Data Source for reading StorageGroups in PowerMax array. PowerMax storage groups are a collection of devices that are stored on the array. An application, a server, or a collection of servers use them.

powermax_volume data source

Data source for reading Volumes in PowerMax array. PowerMax volumes is an identifiable unit of data storage. Storage groups are sets of volumes.
