NetApp PowerShell Toolkit – Get Lun Mapping Information

Recently in a post on the NetApp forum a user asked for help to create a function in Powershell using the DataOntap libraries. Here I show you how we use these libraries to join multiple objects with information related to the LUNs assigned in NetApp.

A curious fact about this request is that natively Ontap libraries do not allow you to filter the required information and that it can be displayed in a single table. For this we create an object within PowerShell where we can build the format of the information and that this has a more logical sense.

NetApp libraries can be installed from the PowerShell Gallery:

[Code of the <get-luninfo> function.]

Import-Module dataontap

#Connect to Ontap Storage

Connect-NcController -Name <cluster> -Vserver <vserver>

#Get the list of LUNs

$luntable = Get-NcLun | Select-Object Path -ExpandProperty Path

#Declare Function

function get-luninfo {


     #Declare the required variable



 #Check if the lun is mapped to any Host (IGROUP)

 if (get-nclunmap $lunpath) {

     #get the lun information

     $lunid = Get-NcLunmap $lunpath | Select-Object LunId -ExpandProperty LunId

     $lunigroup = get-nclunmap $lunpath | Select-Object InitiatorGroup -ExpandProperty InitiatorGroup

     $vserver =  Get-NcLun $lunpath | Select-Object Vserver -ExpandProperty Vserver

     $lunigrouptype = Get-NcIgroup -Name $lunigroup | Select-Object InitiatorGroupType -ExpandProperty InitiatorGroupType

     $lunigrouptypeOS = Get-NcIgroup -Name $lunigroup | Select-Object InitiatorGroupOsType -ExpandProperty InitiatorGroupOsType

     $lunigroupAluaEna = Get-NcIgroup -Name $lunigroup | Select-Object InitiatorGroupAluaEnabled -ExpandProperty InitiatorGroupAluaEnabled

     $initiators = Get-NcIgroup -Name $lunigroup | Select-Object Initiators -Unique -ExpandProperty Initiators

     $initiatorstatus = @()

     #Loop to find the initiators online status

     foreach ($in in $initiators.Initiators.InitiatorName) {

         $status = Confirm-NcLunInitiatorLoggedIn -VserverContext $vserver -Initiator $in | Select-Object Value -ExpandProperty Value

         $initiatorstatus += @(@{Initiator="$in";Online="$status"})


     foreach ($object in $initiatorstatus) {

         $initiatoronline += $object.ForEach({[PSCustomObject]$_})


     #Create a Object to better display and Glue the Information

     $obj = New-Object -TypeName PSObject

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "vServer" -Value $vserver

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Lun ID" -Value $lunid

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "IGROUP Name" -Value $lunigroup

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "IGROUP TYPE" -Value $lunigrouptype

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "IGROUP TYPE OS" -Value $lunigrouptypeOS

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "IGROUP ALUA ENABLE" -Value $lunigroupAluaEna

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Lun Path" -Value $lunpath

     #$obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Initiator Info" -Value $initiatoronline


     #Return the Formated Information

     Write-Output $obj | FT

     Write-Output $initiatoronline


 # If the LUN isnt mapped to any HOST, display the available information.

 else {

     $vserver =  Get-NcLun $lunpath | Select-Object Vserver -ExpandProperty Vserver

     $obj = New-Object -TypeName PSObject

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "vServer" -Value $vserver

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Lun Path" -Value $lunpath

     $obj | add-member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Lun Mapping" -Value "Lun Not Mapped"

     Write-Output $obj | FT -Wrap -AutoSize



#Calling the Function

foreach ($lun in $luntable) {
