cnos_interface – Manage Interface on Lenovo CNOS network devices

New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of Interfaces on Lenovo CNOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggregate
-
added in 2.8
List of Interfaces definitions.
delay
-
added in 2.8
Default:
20
Time in seconds to wait before checking for the operational state on remote device. This wait is applicable for operational state argument which are state with values up/down, tx_rate and rx_rate
description
-
added in 2.8
Description of Interface.
duplex
-
added in 2.8
    Choices:
  • full
  • half
  • auto ←
Interface link status
enabled
boolean
added in 2.8
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Interface link status.
mtu
-
added in 2.8
Maximum size of transmit packet.
name
- / required
added in 2.8
Name of the Interface.
neighbors
-
added in 2.8
Check operational state of given interface name for LLDP neighbor.
The following suboptions are available.
host
-
LLDP neighbor host for given interface name.
port
-
LLDP neighbor port to which interface name is connected.
provider
-
added in 2.8
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
For more information please see the CNOS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
-
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
host
- / required
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
-
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
-
Default:
22
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device.
ssh_keyfile
-
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
-
Default:
10
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
username
-
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
rx_rate
-
added in 2.8
Receiver rate in bits per second (bps).
This is state check parameter only.
Supports conditionals, see Conditionals in Networking Modules
speed
-
added in 2.8
Interface link speed.
state
-
added in 2.8
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • up
  • down
State of the Interface configuration, up means present and operationally up and down means present and operationally down
tx_rate
-
added in 2.8
Transmit rate in bits per second (bps).
This is state check parameter only.
Supports conditionals, see Conditionals in Networking Modules
