community.network.ce_ip_interface module – Manages L3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Note

This module is part of the community.network collection (version 4.0.1).

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 community.network.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.network.ce_ip_interface.

Synopsis

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

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

addr

string

IPv4 or IPv6 Address.

interface

string / required

Full name of interface, i.e. 40GE1/0/22, vlanif10.

ipv4_type

string

Specifies an address type. The value is an enumerated type. main, primary IP address. sub, secondary IP address.

Choices:

  • main ← (default)

  • sub

mask

string

Subnet mask for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in decimal format.

state

string

Specify desired state of the resource.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

version

string

IP address version.

Choices:

  • v4 ← (default)

  • v6

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.

  • 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.
