community.network.ce_switchport module – Manages Layer 2 switchport 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_switchport.

Synopsis

  • Manages Layer 2 switchport interfaces on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

default_vlan

string

If mode=access, or mode=dot1qtunnel, used as the access VLAN ID, in the range from 1 to 4094.

interface

string / required

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

mode

string

The link type of an interface.

Choices:

  • access

  • trunk

  • hybrid

  • dot1qtunnel

pvid_vlan

string

If mode=trunk, or mode=hybrid, used as the trunk native VLAN ID, in the range from 1 to 4094.

state

string

Manage the state of the resource.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

  • unconfigured

tagged_vlans

string

If mode=hybrid, used as the VLAN range to ADD or REMOVE from the trunk, such as 2-10 or 2,5,10-15, etc.

trunk_vlans

string

If mode=trunk, used as the VLAN range to ADD or REMOVE from the trunk, such as 2-10 or 2,5,10-15, etc.

untagged_vlans

string

If mode=hybrid, used as the VLAN range to ADD or REMOVE from the trunk, such as 2-10 or 2,5,10-15, etc.

Notes

Note

  • When state=absent, VLANs can be added/removed from trunk links and the existing access VLAN can be ‘unconfigured’ to just having VLAN 1 on that interface.

  • When working with trunks VLANs the keywords add/remove are always sent in the port trunk allow-pass vlan command. Use verbose mode to see commands sent.

  • When state=unconfigured, the interface will result with having a default Layer 2 interface, i.e. vlan 1 in access mode.

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

  • Recommended connection is ansible.netcommon.netconf.

Examples

- name: Switchport module test
  hosts: cloudengine
  gather_facts: no
  vars:
    ansible_user: root
    ansible_password: PASSWORD
    ansible_connection: ansible.netcommon.netconf
    ansible_network_os: community.network.ce

  tasks:
  - name: Ensure 10GE1/0/22 is in its default switchport state
    community.network.ce_switchport:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      state: unconfigured

  - name: Ensure 10GE1/0/22 is configured for access vlan 20
    community.network.ce_switchport:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      mode: access
      default_vlan: 20

  - name: Ensure 10GE1/0/22 only has vlans 5-10 as trunk vlans
    community.network.ce_switchport:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      mode: trunk
      pvid_vlan: 10
      trunk_vlans: 5-10

  - name: Ensure 10GE1/0/22 is a trunk port and ensure 2-50 are being tagged (doesn't mean others aren't also being tagged)
    community.network.ce_switchport:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      mode: trunk
      pvid_vlan: 10
      trunk_vlans: 2-50

  - name: Ensure these VLANs are not being tagged on the trunk
    community.network.ce_switchport:
      interface: 10GE1/0/22
      mode: trunk
      trunk_vlans: 51-4000
      state: absent
