Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of VLANs options

name

string

Name of the VLAN.

state

string

Operational state of the VLAN

Choices:

  • active

  • suspend

vlan_id

integer / required

ID of the VLAN. Range 1-4094

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 vlan.

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

state

The state of the configuration after module completion

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • rendered

#    state suspend

# using parsed

# parsed.cfg
# vlan 10
#    name ten

  arista.eos.eos_vlans:
    running_config: "{{ lookup('file', 'parsed.cfg') }}"
    state: parsed

# Output:
# -------
#   parsed:
#     - vlan_id: 10
