arista.eos.eos_lag_interfaces module – LAG interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the arista.eos collection (version 5.0.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install arista.eos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: arista.eos.eos_lag_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of arista.eos

Synopsis

  • This module manages attributes of link aggregation groups on Arista EOS devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A list of link aggregation group configurations.

members

list / elements=dictionary

Ethernet interfaces that are part of the group.

member

string

Name of ethernet interface that is a member of the LAG.

mode

string

LAG mode for this interface.

Choices:

  • active

  • on

  • passive

name

string / required

Name of the port-channel interface of the link aggregation group (LAG) e.g., Port-Channel5.

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 interfaces.

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

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • rendered

  • gathered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Arista EOS 4.24.6F

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

  arista.eos.eos_lag_interfaces:
    config:
    - name: 5

#   channel-group 5 mode on

# Using parsed:

# parsed.cfg
# interface Ethernet1
#   channel-group 5 mode on
# interface Ethernet2
#   channel-group 5 mode on

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

# Output:
#   parsed:
#     - name: 5
#       members:
#         - member: Ethernet2
#           mode: on
#         - member: Ethernet1
#           mode: on
