Parameters

Parameter

Comments

auth_string

string

Authentication string. If this needs to be hidden(for md5 type), the string should be 7 followed by the key string. Otherwise, it can be 0 followed by key string or just key string (for backward compatibility). For text type, this should be just be a key string. if this is ‘default’, authentication is removed.

auth_type

string

Authentication type.

Choices:

  • "text"

  • "md5"

group

string / required

HSRP group number.

interface

string / required

Full name of interface that is being managed for HSRP.

preempt

string

Enable/Disable preempt.

Choices:

  • "enabled"

  • "disabled"

priority

string

HSRP priority or keyword ‘default’.

state

string

Specify desired state of the resource.

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

version

  • "1" ← (default)

  • "2"

vip

string

HSRP virtual IP address or keyword ‘default’

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • HSRP feature needs to be enabled first on the system.

  • SVIs must exist before using this module.

  • Interface must be a L3 port before using this module.

  • HSRP cannot be configured on loopback interfaces.

  • MD5 authentication is only possible with HSRPv2 while it is ignored if HSRPv1 is used instead, while it will not raise any error. Here we allow MD5 authentication only with HSRPv2 in order to enforce better practice.
