I am trying to connect netapp filer using splunk netapp appp for collection. I am getting following error while connecting "error: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'text'".
ERROR [TAOntapConfService] [_validate_ontap_server] Could not interact with ontap on host= xx.xx.xx.xx, error: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'text'
INFO [TAOntapConfService] [_validate_ontap_server] successfully updated stanza=uigen:1381433375:90 credential_validation=False connection_validation=False per_target_credential_validation=['Invalid'] per_target_connection_validation=['Invalid']
Can you please help me how to fix this issue.
Thanks for the reply. I was connecting to the filer running on ONTAP 7.2.3. But that version is not supported by splunk. It worked fine when i tried to connect to ONTAP 8.2 version.
Only issue which i see was , Splunk is not returning right error message like " ONTAP version not supported" Instead it throws some other wrong message.
Yup we have confirmed that and are fixing the error message for the next release.
This error is the result of the a call made by the configuration service to validate a particular URI is a valid filer. The error message is atrocious, but not a bug in the code. The filer in question is not responding properly to the API request to the
system-get-ontapi-version endpoint. I have sent a note to the development team about clarifying the error message.
In terms of actually solving your issue I would check that your URI and your credentials are correct and that the version of ontap you are interacting with is supported by Splunk App for NetApp Data ONTAP.
But looks like it is not still fixed? I used splunk app for netapp 2.1.4 which displayed the same message when connecting to Ontap version 7.3.3 (unsupported by splunk as per documentation)
