ce_ip_interface - Manages L3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • Manages Layer 3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
addr
IPv4 or IPv6 Address.
interface
required
Full name of interface, i.e. 40GE1/0/22, vlanif10.
ipv4_type
    Choices:
  • main ←
  • sub
Specifies an address type. The value is an enumerated type. main, primary IP address. sub, secondary IP address.
mask
Subnet mask for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in decimal format.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
version
    Choices:
  • v4 ←
  • v6
IP address version.

Notes

Note

  • Interface must already be a L3 port when using this module.
  • Logical interfaces (loopback, vlanif) 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.

Key Returned Description
changed
boolean
always
check to see if a change was made on the device

Sample:
True
end_state
dict
always
k/v pairs of IP attributes after module execution

Sample:
{'interface': '10GE1/0/22', 'ipv4': [{'subnetMask': '255.255.255.0', 'ifIpAddr': '20.20.20.20', 'addrType': 'main'}]}
existing
dict
always
k/v pairs of existing IP attributes on the interface
