Synopsis

  • Configuring Centralized All-Active Gateways or Distributed Gateway for the VXLAN Network on HUAWEI CloudEngine devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

arp_direct_route

string

Enable VLINK direct route on VBDIF interface.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

arp_distribute_gateway

string

Enable the distributed gateway function on VBDIF interface.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

dfs_all_active

string

Creates all-active gateways.

Choices:

  • enable

  • disable

dfs_id

string

Specifies the ID of a DFS group. The value must be 1.

dfs_peer_ip

string

Configure the IP address of an all-active gateway peer. The value is in dotted decimal notation.

dfs_peer_vpn

string

Specifies the name of the VPN instance that is associated with all-active gateway peer. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters, spaces not supported. When double quotation marks are used around the string, spaces are allowed in the string. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.

dfs_source_ip

string

Specifies the IPv4 address bound to a DFS group. The value is in dotted decimal notation.

dfs_source_vpn

string

Specifies the name of a VPN instance bound to a DFS group. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters without spaces. If the character string is quoted by double quotation marks, the character string can contain spaces. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.

dfs_udp_port

string

Specifies the UDP port number of the DFS group. The value is an integer that ranges from 1025 to 65535.

state

string

Determines whether the config should be present or not on the device.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

vbdif_bind_vpn

string

Specifies the name of the VPN instance that is associated with the interface. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters, spaces not supported. When double quotation marks are used around the string, spaces are allowed in the string. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.

vbdif_mac

string

Specifies a MAC address for a VBDIF interface. The value is in the format of H-H-H. Each H is a 4-digit hexadecimal number, such as 00e0 or fc01. If an H contains less than four digits, 0s are added ahead. For example, e0 is equal to 00e0. A MAC address cannot be all 0s or 1s or a multicast MAC address.

vbdif_name

string

Full name of VBDIF interface, i.e. Vbdif100.

vpn_instance

string

Specifies the name of a VPN instance. The value is a string of 1 to 31 case-sensitive characters, spaces not supported. When double quotation marks are used around the string, spaces are allowed in the string. The value _public_ is reserved and cannot be used as the VPN instance name.

vpn_vni

string

Specifies a VNI ID. Binds a VXLAN network identifier (VNI) to a virtual private network (VPN) instance. The value is an integer ranging from 1 to 16000000.

Notes

Note

  • Ensure All-Active Gateways or Distributed Gateway for the VXLAN Network can not configure at the same time.

  • Recommended connection is network_cli.

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