New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.ios

Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of LACP on Cisco IOS network devices lacp_interfaces.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
list / elements=dictionary
A dictionary of LACP lacp_interfaces option
fast_switchover
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
LACP fast switchover supported on this port channel.
max_bundle
integer
LACP maximum number of ports to bundle in this port channel.
Refer to vendor documentation for valid port values.
name
string / required
Name of the Interface for configuring LACP.
port_priority
integer
LACP priority on this interface.
Refer to vendor documentation for valid port values.
running_config
string
This option is used only with state parsed.
The value of this option should be the output received from the IOS device by executing the command show running-config | section ^interface.
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 the configuration should be left in
The states rendered, gathered and parsed does not perform any change on the device.
The state rendered will transform the configuration in config option to platform specific CLI commands which will be returned in the rendered key within the result. For state rendered active connection to remote host is not required.
The state gathered will fetch the running configuration from device and transform it into structured data in the format as per the resource module argspec and the value is returned in the gathered key within the result.
The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into JSON format as per the resource module parameters and the value is returned in the parsed key within the result. The value of running_config option should be the same format as the output of command show running-config | include ip route|ipv6 route executed on device. For state parsed active connection to remote host is not required.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Cisco IOSv Version 15.2 on VIRL.
