arista.eos.eos_lag_interfaces – LAG interfaces resource module

Note

This plugin is part of the arista.eos collection.

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 Choices/Defaults 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
    Choices:
  • active
  • on
  • passive
LAG mode for this interface.
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
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • overridden
  • deleted
  • rendered
  • gathered
  • parsed
The state of the configuration after module completion.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Arista EOS 4.20.10M

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

# -------------
#
# veos#show running-config | section interface
# interface Ethernet1
#   channel-group 5 mode on

- name: Delete LAG attributes of the given interfaces.
  arista.eos.eos_lag_interfaces:
    config:
    - name: 5
      members:
      - member: Ethernet1
    state: deleted

# After state:
# ------------
#
# veos#show running-config | section interface
# interface Ethernet1
# interface Ethernet2
#   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

# using rendered:

- name: Use Rendered to convert the structured data to native config
  arista.eos.eos_lag_interfaces:
