nxos_pim_interface - Manages PIM interface configuration.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manages PIM interface configuration settings.

Options

parameter required default choices comments
border
no
  • true
  • false
Configures interface to be a boundary of a PIM domain.
hello_auth_key
no
Authentication for hellos on this interface.
hello_interval
no
  • true
  • false
Hello interval in milliseconds for this interface.
host
yes
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
interface
yes
Full name of the interface such as Ethernet1/33.
jp_policy_in
no
Policy for join-prune messages (inbound).
jp_policy_out
yes
Policy for join-prune messages (outbound).
jp_type_in
no
  • prefix
  • routemap
Type of policy mapped to jp_policy_in.
jp_type_out
no
  • prefix
  • routemap
Type of policy mapped to jp_policy_out.
neighbor_policy
no
Configures a neighbor policy for filtering adjacencies.
neighbor_type
no
  • prefix
  • routemap
Type of policy mapped to neighbor_policy.
password
no
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or nxapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
no 0 (use common port)
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or nxapi. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, http=80, https=443).
provider
no
Convenience method that allows all nxos arguments to be passed as a dict object. All constraints (required, choices, etc) must be met either by individual arguments or values in this dict.
sparse
no True
  • true
  • false
Enable/disable sparse-mode on the interface.
ssh_keyfile
no
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for the cli transport. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
state
no present
  • present
  • default
Manages desired state of the resource.
timeout
(added in 2.3)
no 10
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error. NX-API can be slow to return on long-running commands (sh mac, sh bgp, etc).
transport
yes cli
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device. The transport argument supports connectivity to the device over cli (ssh) or nxapi.
use_ssl
no
  • yes
  • no
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to true only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.
username
no
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the nxapi authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
validate_certs
no
  • yes
  • no
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not nxapi, this value is ignored.

Examples

# ensure PIM is not running on the interface
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    state: absent

# ensure the interface has pim-sm enabled with the appropriate priority and hello interval
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    dr_prio: 10
    hello_interval: 40
    state: present

# ensure join-prune policies exist
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    jp_policy_in: JPIN
    jp_policy_out: JPOUT
    jp_type_in: routemap
    jp_type_out: routemap

# ensure defaults are in place
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    state: default

Return Values

Common return values are documented here Return Values, the following are the fields unique to this module:

name description returned type sample
commands
command sent to the device
always list ['interface eth1/33', 'ip pim neighbor-policy test', 'ip pim neighbor-policy test']


Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL
  • When state=default, supported params will be reset to a default state. These include dr_prio, hello_auth_key, hello_interval, jp_policy_out, jp_policy_in, jp_type_in, jp_type_out, border, neighbor_policy, neighbor_type.
  • The hello_auth_key param is not idempotent.
  • hello_auth_key only supports clear text passwords.
  • When state=absent, pim interface configuration will be set to defaults and pim-sm will be disabled on the interface.
  • PIM must be enabled on the device to use this module.
  • This module is for Layer 3 interfaces.

Status

This module is flagged as preview which means that it is not guaranteed to have a backwards compatible interface.
