nxos_ip_interface - Manages L3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces.

New in version 2.1.

Synopsis

  • Manages Layer 3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces.

Options

parameter required default choices comments
addr
no
IPv4 or IPv6 Address.
allow_secondary
(added in 2.4)
no
Allow to configure IPv4 secondary addresses on 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 interface, i.e. Ethernet1/1, vlan10.
mask
no
Subnet mask for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in decimal format.
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
no present
  • present
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
tag
(added in 2.4)
no
Route tag for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in integer format.
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

- name: Ensure ipv4 address is configured on Ethernet1/32
  nxos_ip_interface:
    interface: Ethernet1/32
    transport: nxapi
    version: v4
    state: present
    addr: 20.20.20.20
    mask: 24

- name: Ensure ipv6 address is configured on Ethernet1/31
  nxos_ip_interface:
    interface: Ethernet1/31
    transport: cli
    version: v6
    state: present
    addr: '2001::db8:800:200c:cccb'
    mask: 64

- name: Ensure ipv4 address is configured with tag
  nxos_ip_interface:
    interface: Ethernet1/32
    transport: nxapi
    version: v4
    state: present
    tag: 100
    addr: 20.20.20.20
    mask: 24

- name: Configure ipv4 address as secondary if needed
  nxos_ip_interface:
    interface: Ethernet1/32
    transport: nxapi
    version: v4
    state: present
    allow_secondary: true
    addr: 21.21.21.21
    mask: 24

Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
end_state k/v pairs of IP attributes after module execution always dict {'interface': 'ethernet1/32', 'prefixes': ['11.11.0.0/17', '20.20.20.0/24'], 'type': 'ethernet', 'addresses': [{'tag': 101, 'mask': 17, 'addr': '11.11.11.11', 'secondary': False}, {'tag': 100, 'mask': 24, 'addr': '20.20.20.20', 'secondary': True}], 'vrf': 'default'}
commands commands sent to the device always list ['interface ethernet1/32', 'ip address 20.20.20.20/24 secondary tag 100']
changed check to see if a change was made on the device always boolean True
proposed k/v pairs of parameters passed into module always dict {'interface': 'Ethernet1/32', 'allow_secondary': True, 'mask': '24', 'addr': '20.20.20.20', 'tag': 100}
existing k/v pairs of existing IP attributes on the interface always dict {'interface': 'ethernet1/32', 'prefixes': ['11.11.0.0/17'], 'type': 'ethernet', 'addresses': [{'tag': 101, 'mask': 17, 'addr': '11.11.11.11', 'secondary': False}], 'vrf': 'default'}


Notes

Note

  • Interface must already be a L3 port when using this module.
  • Logical interfaces (po, loop, svi) must be created first.
  • mask must be inserted in decimal format (i.e. 24) for both IPv6 and IPv4.
  • A single interface can have multiple IPv6 configured.

Status

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