Note

This module is part of the cisco.nxos collection (version 9.0.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install cisco.nxos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.nxos.nxos_fc_interfaces.

New in cisco.nxos 5.2.0

Synopsis

  • This module manages the interface attributes of NX-OS fc interfaces.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of interface options

analytics

string

Analytics type on the fc interface

Choices:

  • "fc-scsi"

  • "fc-nvme"

  • "fc-all"

description

string

Interface description.

enabled

boolean

Administrative state of the interface. Set the value to true to administratively enable the interface or true to disable it

Choices:

  • false

  • true

mode

string

Port mode of the fc interface

Choices:

  • "auto"

  • "E"

  • "F"

  • "Fx"

  • "NP"

  • "SD"

name

string / required

Full name of interface, e.g. fc1/1, fc18/48

speed

string

Interface link speed.

Choices:

  • "auto"

  • "1000"

  • "2000"

  • "4000"

  • "8000"

  • "10000"

  • "16000"

  • "32000"

  • "64000"

  • "auto max 2000"

  • "auto max 4000"

  • "auto max 8000"

  • "auto max 16000"

  • "auto max 32000"

  • "auto max 64000"

trunk_mode

string

Trunk mode of the fc interface

Choices:

  • "auto"

  • "on"

  • "off"

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the NX-OS device by executing the command show running-config interface

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state of the configuration after module completion

Choices:

  • "merged" ← (default)

  • "replaced"

  • "overridden"

  • "deleted"

  • "gathered"

  • "rendered"

  • "parsed"

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOS 9.3(2) on Cisco MDS Switches

Return Values

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

Key

Description

after

dictionary

The resulting configuration after module execution.

Returned: when changed

Sample: "This output will always be in the same format as the module argspec.\n"

before

dictionary

The configuration prior to the module execution.

Returned: when state is merged, replaced, overridden, deleted or purged

Sample: "This output will always be in the same format as the module argspec.\n"

commands

list / elements=string
