Hello Jefri Setifanus,

Which san storage device do you have as you didn’t state that in your post?  It might be possible on some storage systems, but we need to know which storage system you have.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi Jefri,

Here are the community versions of Python SDK and Ansible:

https://github.com/ansible-dellemc-unity/dellemc-unity-sdk

https://github.com/ansible-dellemc-unity/ansible-dellemc-unity

Please note that these are community maintained & supported projects. Dell EMC is not responsible for any of the above.

I also see REST API, SMI-S, Unisphere CLI for Unity here:

Jefri,

apologies for the late response on this one, absolutely it's possible to provision storage via scripts and automation utilities.  Each Dell EMC array provides a REST API interface and most also provide an SDK or Integration Utilities for use with tools such as vRO, Ansible or via Python scripts.

Please see https://www.dellemc.com/en-us/storage/storage-automation-and-developer-resources/index.htm
