nxos_udld - Manages UDLD global configuration params.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manages UDLD global configuration params.

Options

parameter required default choices comments
aggressive
no
  • enabled
  • disabled
Toggles aggressive mode.
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.
msg_time
no
Message time in seconds for UDLD packets.
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.
reset
no
  • true
  • false
Ability to reset UDLD down interfaces.
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
Manage the 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.

Examples

# ensure udld aggressive mode is globally disabled and se global message interval is 20
- nxos_udld:
    aggressive: disabled
    msg_time: 20
    host: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"
    username: "{{ un }}"
    password: "{{ pwd }}"

# Ensure agg mode is globally enabled and msg time is 15
- nxos_udld:
    aggressive: enabled
    msg_time: 15
    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
end_state k/v pairs of udld configuration after module execution always dict {'msg_time': '40', 'aggressive': 'enabled'}
changed check to see if a change was made on the device always boolean True
updates command sent to the device always list ['udld message-time 40', 'udld aggressive']
proposed k/v pairs of parameters passed into module always dict {'msg_time': '40', 'aggressive': 'enabled'}
existing ['k/v pairs of existing udld configuration'] dict {'msg_time': '15', 'aggressive': 'disabled'}


Notes

Note

  • When state=absent, it unconfigures existing settings msg_time and set it to its default value of 15. It is cleaner to always use state=present.
  • Module will fail if the udld feature has not been previously enabled.

Status

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