Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of L2 interfaces on Arista EOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
access_vlan
string
Configure given VLAN in access port. If mode=access, used as the access VLAN ID.
aggregate
list / elements=dictionary
List of Layer-2 interface definitions.
access_vlan
string
Configure given VLAN in access port. If mode=access, used as the access VLAN ID.
mode
string
    Choices:
  • access
  • trunk
Mode in which interface needs to be configured.
name
string / required
Name of the interface
native_vlan
string
Native VLAN to be configured in trunk port. If mode=trunk, used as the trunk native VLAN ID.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present
  • absent
Manage the state of the Layer-2 Interface configuration.
trunk_allowed_vlans
string
List of allowed VLANs in a given trunk port. If mode=trunk, these are the ONLY VLANs that will be configured on the trunk, i.e. 2-10,15.

aliases: trunk_vlans
mode
string
    Choices:
  • access
  • trunk
Mode in which interface needs to be configured.
name
string
Name of the interface

aliases: interface
native_vlan
string
Native VLAN to be configured in trunk port. If mode=trunk, used as the trunk native VLAN ID.
provider
dictionary
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
Starting with Ansible 2.6 we recommend using connection: httpapi for eAPI.
This option will be removed in a release after 2022-06-01.
For more information please see the EOS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
string
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
string
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
string
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or eapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
integer
Default:
0
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or eapi.
The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task (cli=22, http=80, https=443).
ssh_keyfile
path
Specifies the SSH keyfile to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for cli transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
integer
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.
transport
string
    Choices:
  • cli ←
  • eapi
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
use_proxy
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to yes only when the transport=eapi. If the transport argument is not eapi, this value is ignored.
username
string
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the eAPI authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not eapi, this value is ignored.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Manage the state of the Layer-2 Interface configuration.
trunk_allowed_vlans
string
List of allowed VLANs in a given trunk port. If mode=trunk, these are the ONLY VLANs that will be configured on the trunk, i.e. 2-10,15.

Notes

Note

Examples

- name: Ensure Ethernet1 does not have any switchport
  arista.eos.eos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1
    state: absent

- name: Ensure Ethernet1 is configured for access vlan 20
  arista.eos.eos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1
    mode: access
    access_vlan: 20

- name: Ensure Ethernet1 is a trunk port and ensure 2-50 are being tagged (doesn't
    mean others aren't also being tagged)
  arista.eos.eos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1
    mode: trunk
    native_vlan: 10
    trunk_allowed_vlans: 2-50

- name: Set switchports on aggregate
  arista.eos.eos_l2_interface:
    aggregate:
    - {name: ethernet1, mode: access, access_vlan: 20}
    - {name: ethernet2, mode: trunk, native_vlan: 10}

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:
