Synopsis

  • Manages interface DLDP configuration on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

enable

string

Set interface DLDP enable state.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

interface

string / required

Must be fully qualified interface name, i.e. GE1/0/1, 10GE1/0/1, 40GE1/0/22, 100GE1/0/1.

local_mac

string

Set the source MAC address for DLDP packets sent in the DLDP-compatible mode. The value of MAC address is in H-H-H format. H contains 1 to 4 hexadecimal digits.

mode_enable

string

Set DLDP compatible-mode enable state.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

reset

string

Specify whether reseting interface DLDP state.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

state

string

Manage the state of the resource.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

Notes

Note

  • If state=present, enable=disable, interface DLDP enable will be turned off and related interface DLDP configuration will be cleared.

  • If state=absent, only local_mac is supported to configure.

  • This module requires the netconf system service be enabled on the remote device being managed.

  • Recommended connection is netconf.

  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.
