New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • This module manage MAC pools in oVirt/RHV.

Requirements (on host that executes module)

  • python >= 2.7
  • ovirt-engine-sdk-python >= 4.0.0

Options

parameter required default choices comments
allow_duplicates
no
If (true) allow a MAC address to be used multiple times in a pool.
Default value is set by oVirt/RHV engine to false.
auth
yes
Dictionary with values needed to create HTTP/HTTPS connection to oVirt:
username[required] - The name of the user, something like [email protected]. Default value is set by OVIRT_USERNAME environment variable.
password[required] - The password of the user. Default value is set by OVIRT_PASSWORD environment variable.
url[required] - A string containing the base URL of the server, usually something like `https://server.example.com/ovirt-engine/api`. Default value is set by OVIRT_URL environment variable.
token - Token to be used instead of login with username/password. Default value is set by OVIRT_TOKEN environment variable.
insecure - A boolean flag that indicates if the server TLS certificate and host name should be checked.
ca_file - A PEM file containing the trusted CA certificates. The certificate presented by the server will be verified using these CA certificates. If `ca_file` parameter is not set, system wide CA certificate store is used. Default value is set by OVIRT_CAFILE environment variable.
kerberos - A boolean flag indicating if Kerberos authentication should be used instead of the default basic authentication.
headers - Dictionary of HTTP headers to be added to each API call.
description
no
Description of the MAC pool.
fetch_nested
(added in 2.3)
no
If True the module will fetch additional data from the API.
It will fetch IDs of the VMs disks, snapshots, etc. User can configure to fetch other attributes of the nested entities by specifying nested_attributes.
name
yes
Name of the MAC pool to manage.
nested_attributes
(added in 2.3)
no
Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.
This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.
poll_interval
no 3
Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.
ranges
no
List of MAC ranges. The from and to should be split by comma.
For example: 00:1a:4a:16:01:51,00:1a:4a:16:01:61
state
no present
  • present
  • absent
Should the mac pool be present or absent.
timeout
no 180
The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.
wait
no
True if the module should wait for the entity to get into desired state.

Examples

# Examples don't contain auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication:

# Create MAC pool:
- ovirt_mac_pools:
    name: mymacpool
    allow_duplicates: false
    ranges:
      - 00:1a:4a:16:01:51,00:1a:4a:16:01:61
      - 00:1a:4a:16:02:51,00:1a:4a:16:02:61

# Remove MAC pool:
- ovirt_mac_pools:
    state: absent
    name: mymacpool

Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
id
ID of the MAC pool which is managed
On success if MAC pool is found. str 7de90f31-222c-436c-a1ca-7e655bd5b60c
template
Dictionary of all the MAC pool attributes. MAC pool attributes can be found on your oVirt/RHV instance at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/mac_pool.
On success if MAC pool is found. dict
