credentials for netapp storage

Post by bkain1 »

this is a product request/question if it's veeam 11 - it doesn't appear you can query get-netapphost to get the credentials used to mount the netapp storage and the only way to get credentials for the storage is get-credentials, which gives the whole vbr. Can we request get-netapphost to show everything the gui shows?

thanks

Hi Becki,

You can get credentials for NetApp host calling GetConnectionCredentials method():

Code: Select all

$netApp = Get-NetApphost
$netApp.GetConnectionCredentials()
Thanks,
Oleg

thanks, that works but doesn't say for which connection each credential is. ours are all the same, for vbr to netapp, but if we had four different service accounts, you couldn't tell which connection was which credential. thanks

True, but you can get the credential id precisely with another method:

Code: Select all

$netApp = Get-NetApphost
$netApp.GetConnCredsId()
Thanks!

You can then use that guid to parse credential object:

Code: Select all

$credsId = $netApp.GetConnCredsId()
$creds = Get-VBRCredential | where {$_.Id -eq $credsId}
Thanks!
