time_internal

string

Specifies the interval for sending Advertisement packets. The value is an integer ranging from 1 to 100, in seconds. The default interval for sending Advertisement packets is 5 seconds.

work_mode

string

Set global DLDP work-mode.

Choices:

  • enhance

  • normal

Notes

Note

  • The relevant configurations will be deleted if DLDP is disabled using enable=disable.

  • When using auth_mode=none, it will restore the default DLDP authentication mode. By default, DLDP packets are not authenticated.

  • By default, the working mode of DLDP is enhance, so you are advised to use work_mode=enhance to restore default DLDP working mode.

  • The default interval for sending Advertisement packets is 5 seconds, so you are advised to use time_interval=5 to restore default DLDP interval.

  • 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.
