Synopsis

  • This module manages Global Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) on IOS-XR devices.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

dictionary

The provided configurations.

system

dictionary

This option sets the default system parameters for LACP bundles.

mac

dictionary

The system MAC related configuration for LACP.

address

string

The system ID to use in LACP negotiations.

priority

integer

The system priority to use in LACP negotiations.

Lower value is higher priority.

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-XR device by executing the command show running-config lacp.

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

  • deleted

  • parsed

  • rendered

  • gathered
