Synopsis

  • This module manages Global Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) on Arista EOS devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

dictionary

LACP global options.

system

dictionary

LACP system options.

priority

integer

The system priority to use in LACP negotiations.

Lower value is higher priority.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the EOS device by executing the command show running-config | section ^lacp.

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state of the configuration after module completion.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • deleted

  • parsed

  • rendered

  • gathered

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Arista EOS 4.24.6F

  • This module works with connection network_cli. See the EOS Platform Options.

# -------------
# veos# show running-config | include lacp
# lacp system-priority 10

  arista.eos.eos_lacp:
    config:
      system:

    state: rendered

# Output:
# ------------
# rendered:
#   - "lacp system-priority 20"
#

# Using parsed:

# parsed.cfg
# lacp system-priority 20

- name: Use parsed to convert native configs to structured data
  arista.eos.eos_lacp:
    running_config: "{{ lookup('file', 'parsed.cfg') }}"
    state: parsed

# Output:
# parsed:
#   system:
#     priority: 20

# Using gathered:
# nathive config:
# -------------
