nxos_gir - Trigger a graceful removal or insertion (GIR) of the switch.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Trigger a graceful removal or insertion (GIR) of the switch.

Options

parameter required default choices comments
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.
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.
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
yes present
  • present
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
system_mode_maintenance
no
  • true
  • false
When system_mode_maintenance=true it puts all enabled protocols in maintenance mode (using the isolate command). When system_mode_maintenance=false it puts all enabled protocols in normal mode (using the no isolate command).
system_mode_maintenance_dont_generate_profile
no
  • true
  • false
When system_mode_maintenance_dont_generate_profile=true it prevents the dynamic searching of enabled protocols and executes commands configured in a maintenance-mode profile. Use this option if you want the system to use a maintenance-mode profile that you have created. When system_mode_maintenance_dont_generate_profile=false it prevents the dynamic searching of enabled protocols and executes commands configured in a normal-mode profile. Use this option if you want the system to use a normal-mode profile that you have created.
system_mode_maintenance_on_reload_reset_reason
no
  • hw_error
  • svc_failure
  • kern_failure
  • wdog_timeout
  • fatal_error
  • lc_failure
  • match_any
  • manual_reload
Boots the switch into maintenance mode automatically in the event of a specified system crash.
system_mode_maintenance_shutdown
no
  • true
  • false
Shuts down all protocols, vPC domains, and interfaces except the management interface (using the shutdown command). This option is disruptive while system_mode_maintenance (which uses the isolate command) is not.
system_mode_maintenance_timeout
no
Keeps the switch in maintenance mode for a specified number of minutes. Range is 5-65535.
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

# Trigger system maintenance mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance: true
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"
# Trigger system normal mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance: false
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"
# Configure on-reload reset-reason for maintenance mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance_on_reload_reset_reason: manual_reload
    state: present
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"
# Add on-reload reset-reason for maintenance mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance_on_reload_reset_reason: hw_error
    state: present
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"
# Remove on-reload reset-reason for maintenance mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance_on_reload_reset_reason: manual_reload
    state: absent
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"
# Set timeout for maintenance mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance_timeout: 30
    state: present
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"
# Remove timeout for maintenance mode
- nxos_gir:
    system_mode_maintenance_timeout: 30
    state: absent
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"

Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
final_system_mode describe the last system mode verbose mode string normal
updates commands sent to the device verbose mode list ['terminal dont-ask', 'system mode maintenance timeout 10']
changed check to see if a change was made on the device always boolean True


Notes

Note

  • state has effect only in combination with system_mode_maintenance_timeout or system_mode_maintenance_on_reload_reset_reason.
  • Using system_mode_maintenance and system_mode_maintenance_dont_generate_profile would make the module fail, but the system mode will be triggered anyway.

Status

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