slxos_command – Run commands on remote devices running Extreme Networks SLX-OS¶
New in version 2.6.
Sends arbitrary commands to an SLX node and returns the results read from the device. This module includes an argument that will cause the module to wait for a specific condition before returning or timing out if the condition is not met.
This module does not support running commands in configuration mode. Please use slxos_config to configure SLX-OS devices.
Tested against SLX-OS 17s.1.02
If a command sent to the device requires answering a prompt, it is possible to pass a dict containing command, answer and prompt. See examples.
