pyControl Creating a DC sample script 1

Problem this snippet solves:

This pyControl script creates a Datacenter. It checks to makesure the ip addres of the bigip is a valid IP address. This version of the script will allow you to pass command line arguments to the script.

Code :

#This Script creates a DC . 
import pycontrol.pyControl as pyControl
import sys
import re

#check to see if the right number of arguments are present

nargs = len(sys.argv)

if nargs < 7:
print "Usage: GTM_ip_addr username password DC_name DC_location contact"

#check to makesure the ip addres is valid
ip_str = sys.argv[1]
def checkip(ip_str):
   pattern = r"\b(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\.(25[0-5]|2[0-4][0-9]|[01]?[0-9][0-9]?)\b"
   if re.match(pattern, ip_str):
      return True
     print checkip(ip_str)

#Create the BigIP object

b = pyControl.BIGIP(hostname   = sys.argv[1],
    username   = sys.argv[2],
    password   = sys.argv[3],
    wsdl_files = ['GlobalLB.DataCenter']

#Create a DC  
d = b.GlobalLB_DataCenter


d.create( data_centers = [{'name' : sys.argv[4], 
 'location': sys.argv[5], 
 'contact' : sys.argv[6]}])

print "DATA CENTER Successfully created."

except: print "DC creation error. Check log."

# Enable the DC


d.set_enabled_state( data_centers = [sys.argv[4]],

states = ['1']


print "DATA CENTER Successfully enabled."

except: print "DC enable error. Check log."
