cisco.iosxr.iosxr_l2_interfaces module – Resource Module to configure L2 interfaces.

Note

This module is part of the cisco.iosxr collection (version 3.3.1).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install cisco.iosxr.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.iosxr.iosxr_l2_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.iosxr

Synopsis

  • This module manages the Layer-2 interface attributes on Cisco IOS-XR devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of Layer-2 interface options

encapsulation

dictionary

Specify which packets will be matched by this sub-interface.

dot1q

integer

IEEE 802.1Q VLAN-tagged packets.

second_dot1q

integer

IEEE 802.1Q VLAN-tagged packets.

l2protocol

list / elements=dictionary

Configures Layer 2 protocol tunneling and protocol data unit (PDU) filtering on an interface.

cdp

string

Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) tunneling and data unit parameters.

Choices:

  • drop

  • forward

  • tunnel

cpsv

string

CDP, PVST+, STP, and VTP protocols.

Choices:

  • drop

  • reverse-tunnel

  • tunnel

pvst

string

Configures the per-VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (PVST) tunneling and data unit parameters.

Choices:

  • drop

  • forward

  • tunnel

stp

string

Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) tunneling and data unit parameters.

Choices:

  • drop

  • forward

  • tunnel

vtp

string

VLAN Trunk Protocol (VTP) tunneling and data unit parameters.

Choices:

  • drop

  • forward

  • tunnel

l2transport

boolean

Switchport mode access command to configure the interface as a layer 2 access

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

name

string / required

Full name of the interface/sub-interface excluding any logical unit number, e.g. GigabitEthernet0/0/0/1 or GigabitEthernet0/0/0/1.100.

native_vlan

integer

Configure a native VLAN ID for the trunk

propagate

boolean

Propagate Layer 2 transport events. Note that it will work only when the l2tranport option is set to TRUE

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

q_vlan

list / elements=integer

802.1Q VLAN configuration. Note that it can accept either 2 VLAN IDs when configuring Q-in-Q VLAN, or it will accept 1 VLAN ID and ‘any’ as input list when configuring Q-in-any vlan as input. Note, that this option is valid only with respect to Sub-Interface and is not valid when configuring for Interface.

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the IOS-XR device by executing the command show running-config 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

The state of the configuration after module completion

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • rendered

  • gathered

  • parsed
