__init__(config, **kwargs)

Creates a new service client

Parameters:
  • config (dict) – Configuration keys and values as per SDK and Tool Configuration. The from_file() method can be used to load configuration from a file. Alternatively, a dict can be passed. You can validate_config the dict using validate_config()
  • service_endpoint (str) – (optional) The endpoint of the service to call using this client. For example https://iaas.us-ashburn-1.oraclecloud.com. If this keyword argument is not provided then it will be derived using the region in the config parameter. You should only provide this keyword argument if you have an explicit need to specify a service endpoint.
  • timeout (float or tuple(float, float)) – (optional) The connection and read timeouts for the client. The default values are connection timeout 10 seconds and read timeout 60 seconds. This keyword argument can be provided as a single float, in which case the value provided is used for both the read and connection timeouts, or as a tuple of two floats. If a tuple is provided then the first value is used as the connection timeout and the second value as the read timeout.
  • signer (AbstractBaseSigner) –

    (optional) The signer to use when signing requests made by the service client. The default is to use a Signer based on the values provided in the config parameter.

    One use case for this parameter is for Instance Principals authentication by passing an instance of InstancePrincipalsSecurityTokenSigner as the value for this keyword argument

  • retry_strategy (obj) –

    (optional) A retry strategy to apply to all calls made by this service client (i.e. at the client level). There is no retry strategy applied by default. Retry strategies can also be applied at the operation level by passing a retry_strategy keyword argument as part of calling the operation. Any value provided at the operation level will override whatever is specified at the client level.

    This should be one of the strategies available in the retry module. A convenience DEFAULT_RETRY_STRATEGY is also available. The specifics of the default retry strategy are described here.

create_esxi_host(create_esxi_host_details, **kwargs)

Adds another ESXi host to an existing SDDC. The attributes of the specified Sddc determine the VMware software and other configuration settings used by the ESXi host.

Use the WorkRequest operations to track the creation of the ESXi host.

Parameters:
  • create_esxi_host_details (oci.ocvp.models.CreateEsxiHostDetails) – (required) Details for the ESXi host.
  • opc_retry_token (str) – (optional) A token that uniquely identifies a request so it can be retried in case of a timeout or server error without risk of executing that same action again. Retry tokens expire after 24 hours, but can be invalidated before then due to conflicting operations (for example, if a resource has been deleted and purged from the system, then a retry of the original creation request may be rejected).
  • opc_request_id (str) – (optional) Unique identifier for the request. If you need to contact Oracle about a particular request, please provide the request ID.
  • retry_strategy (obj) –

    (optional) A retry strategy to apply to this specific operation/call. This will override any retry strategy set at the client-level.

    This should be one of the strategies available in the retry module. A convenience DEFAULT_RETRY_STRATEGY is also available. The specifics of the default retry strategy are described here.

    To have this operation explicitly not perform any retries, pass an instance of NoneRetryStrategy.

Returns:

A Response object with data of type None

Return type:

Response

delete_esxi_host(esxi_host_id, **kwargs)

Deletes the specified ESXi host. Before deleting the host, back up or migrate any VMware workloads running on it.

When you delete an ESXi host, Oracle does not remove the node configuration within the VMware environment itself. That is your responsibility.

Note: If you delete EXSi hosts from the SDDC to total less than 3, you are still billed for the 3 minimum recommended EXSi hosts. Also, you cannot add more VMware workloads to the SDDC until it again has at least 3 ESXi hosts.

Use the WorkRequest operations to track the deletion of the ESXi host.

Parameters:
  • esxi_host_id (str) –

    (required) The OCID of the ESXi host.

  • if_match (str) – (optional) For optimistic concurrency control. In the PUT or DELETE call for a resource, set the if-match parameter to the value of the etag from a previous GET or POST response for that resource. The resource will be updated or deleted only if the etag you provide matches the resource’s current etag value.
  • opc_request_id (str) – (optional) Unique identifier for the request. If you need to contact Oracle about a particular request, please provide the request ID.
  • retry_strategy (obj) –

    (optional) A retry strategy to apply to this specific operation/call. This will override any retry strategy set at the client-level.

    This should be one of the strategies available in the retry module. A convenience DEFAULT_RETRY_STRATEGY is also available. The specifics of the default retry strategy are described here.

    To have this operation explicitly not perform any retries, pass an instance of NoneRetryStrategy.

Returns:

A Response object with data of type None

Return type:

Response

get_esxi_host(esxi_host_id, **kwargs)

Gets the specified ESXi host’s information.

Parameters:
  • esxi_host_id (str) –

    (required) The OCID of the ESXi host.

  • opc_request_id (str) – (optional) Unique identifier for the request. If you need to contact Oracle about a particular request, please provide the request ID.
  • retry_strategy (obj) –

    (optional) A retry strategy to apply to this specific operation/call. This will override any retry strategy set at the client-level.

    This should be one of the strategies available in the retry module. A convenience DEFAULT_RETRY_STRATEGY is also available. The specifics of the default retry strategy are described here.

    To have this operation explicitly not perform any retries, pass an instance of NoneRetryStrategy.

Returns:

A Response object with data of type EsxiHost

Return type:

Response

list_esxi_hosts(**kwargs)

Lists the ESXi hosts in the specified SDDC. The list can be filtered by Compute instance OCID or ESXi display name.

Remember that in terms of implementation, an ESXi host is a Compute instance that is configured with the chosen bundle of VMware software. Each EsxiHost object has its own OCID (id), and a separate attribute for the OCID of the Compute instance (computeInstanceId). When filtering the list of ESXi hosts, you can specify the OCID of the Compute instance, not the ESXi host OCID.

Parameters:
  • sddc_id (str) –

    (optional) The OCID of the SDDC.

  • compute_instance_id (str) –

    (optional) The OCID of the Compute instance.

  • display_name (str) – (optional) A filter to return only resources that match the given display name exactly.
  • limit (int) –

    (optional) For list pagination. The maximum number of results per page, or items to return in a paginated “List” call. For important details about how pagination works, see List Pagination.

  • page (str) –

    (optional) For list pagination. The value of the opc-next-page response header from the previous “List” call. For important details about how pagination works, see List Pagination.

  • sort_order (str) –

    (optional) The sort order to use, either ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC). The DISPLAYNAME sort order is case sensitive.

    Allowed values are: “ASC”, “DESC”

  • sort_by (str) –

    (optional) The field to sort by. You can provide one sort order (sortOrder). Default order for TIMECREATED is descending. Default order for DISPLAYNAME is ascending. The DISPLAYNAME sort order is case sensitive.

    Note: In general, some “List” operations (for example, ListInstances) let you optionally filter by availability domain if the scope of the resource type is within a single availability domain. If you call one of these “List” operations without specifying an availability domain, the resources are grouped by availability domain, then sorted.

    Allowed values are: “timeCreated”, “displayName”

  • opc_request_id (str) – (optional) Unique identifier for the request. If you need to contact Oracle about a particular request, please provide the request ID.
  • lifecycle_state (str) –

    (optional) The lifecycle state of the resource.

    Allowed values are: “CREATING”, “UPDATING”, “ACTIVE”, “DELETING”, “DELETED”, “FAILED”

  • retry_strategy (obj) –

    (optional) A retry strategy to apply to this specific operation/call. This will override any retry strategy set at the client-level.

    This should be one of the strategies available in the retry module. A convenience DEFAULT_RETRY_STRATEGY is also available. The specifics of the default retry strategy are described here.

    To have this operation explicitly not perform any retries, pass an instance of NoneRetryStrategy.

Returns:

A Response object with data of type EsxiHostCollection

Return type:

  • if_match (str) – (optional) For optimistic concurrency control. In the PUT or DELETE call for a resource, set the if-match parameter to the value of the etag from a previous GET or POST response for that resource. The resource will be updated or deleted only if the etag you provide matches the resource’s current etag value.
  • opc_request_id (str) – (optional) Unique identifier for the request. If you need to contact Oracle about a particular request, please provide the request ID.
