NetApp’s Workflow Automation (WFA) supports two languages out-of-the-box: Powershell and Perl. Adding modules to the perl installation is done in a non-obvious way because the install does not include ActiveState’s PPM package manager.
However, the PPM command line utility is included. Here is how to use it to manage the packages on your system.
First, you will need to open a command prompt with elevated privileges. Click the start button, find “cmd”, right click and select “Run as Administrator”.
# browse to the correct location
# use the ppm command line utility to view the repos
ppm repo list
# if you don't see the ActiveState repo, add it using the following command:
ppm repo add activestate
# once that's done, install the modules using the ppm install command
ppm install DBD::mysql
# if you want to know all of the modules on your system, use this command:
# you may also need to execute the following command to make sure the
# module database is up-to-date
