slxos_command – Run commands on remote devices running Extreme Networks SLX-OS¶
New in version 2.6.
- Sends arbitrary commands to an SLX node and returns the results read from the device. This module includes an argument that will cause the module to wait for a specific condition before returning or timing out if the condition is not met.
- This module does not support running commands in configuration mode. Please use slxos_config to configure SLX-OS devices.
- Tested against SLX-OS 17s.1.02
- If a command sent to the device requires answering a prompt, it is possible to pass a dict containing command, answer and prompt. See examples.
