Synopsis

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

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

dictionary

The provided configurations.

system

dictionary

This option sets the default system parameters for LACP.

priority

integer / required

LACP priority for the system.

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 IOS device by executing the command show lacp sys-id.

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 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.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • deleted

  • rendered

  • parsed

  • gathered
