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 ^ntp.

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 states replaced and overridden have identical behaviour for this module.

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 | section ^ntp executed on device. For state parsed active connection to remote host is not required.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • rendered

  • gathered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

  • Tested against Cisco IOSv Version 15.6.

  • This module works with connection network_cli.

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key

Description

after

dictionary

The resulting configuration after module execution.

Returned: when changed

Sample: “This output will always be in the same format as the module argspec.\n”

before

dictionary

The configuration prior to the module execution.

Returned: when state is merged, replaced, overridden, deleted or purged

Sample: “This output will always be in the same format as the module argspec.\n”

commands

list / elements=string

The set of commands pushed to the remote device.

Returned: when state is merged, replaced, overridden, deleted or purged

Sample: [“ntp peer 20.18.11.3 key 6 minpoll 15 prefer version 2”, “ntp access-group ipv4 peer DHCP-Server kod”, “ntp trusted-key 9 - 96”, “ntp master stratum 2”, “ntp orphan 4”, “ntp panic update”]

gathered

list / elements=string

Facts about the network resource gathered from the remote device as structured data.

Returned: when state is gathered

Sample: “This output will always be in the same format as the module argspec.\n”

parsed

list / elements=string

The device native config provided in running_config option parsed into structured data as per module argspec.

Returned: when state is parsed

Sample: “This output will always be in the same format as the module argspec.\n”

rendered

list / elements=string

The provided configuration in the task rendered in device-native format (offline).

Returned: when state is rendered

Sample: [“ntp master stratum 2”, “ntp server ip testserver.com prefer”, “ntp authentication-key 2 md5 testpass 22”, “ntp allow mode control 4”, “ntp max-associations 34”, “ntp broadcastdelay 22”]
