Synopsis

  • Manages IGMP interface configuration settings.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

group_timeout

string

Sets the group membership timeout for IGMPv2. Values can range from 3 to 65,535 seconds or keyword ‘default’. The default is 260 seconds.

immediate_leave

boolean

Enables the device to remove the group entry from the multicast routing table immediately upon receiving a leave message for the group. Use this command to minimize the leave latency of IGMPv2 group memberships on a given IGMP interface because the device does not send group-specific queries. The default is disabled.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

interface

string / required

The full interface name for IGMP configuration. e.g. Ethernet1/2.

last_member_qrt

string

Sets the query interval waited after sending membership reports before the software deletes the group state. Values can range from 1 to 25 seconds or keyword ‘default’. The default is 1 second.

last_member_query_count

string

Sets the number of times that the software sends an IGMP query in response to a host leave message. Values can range from 1 to 5 or keyword ‘default’. The default is 2.

oif_ps

raw

Configure prefixes and sources for static outgoing interface (OIF). This is a list of dict where each dict has source and prefix defined or just prefix if source is not needed. The specified values will be configured on the device and if any previous prefix/sources exist, they will be removed. Keyword ‘default’ is also accepted which removes all existing prefix/sources.

oif_routemap

string

Configure a routemap for static outgoing interface (OIF) or keyword ‘default’.

provider

dictionary

Deprecated

Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.

Starting with Ansible 2.6 we recommend using connection: httpapi for NX-API.

This option will be removed in a release after 2022-06-01.

For more information please see the https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/network/user_guide/platform_nxos.html.


A dict object containing connection details.

auth_pass

string

Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.

authorize

boolean

Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

host

string

Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.

password

string

Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or nxapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.

port

integer

Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or nxapi. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, http=80, https=443).

ssh_keyfile

string

Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for the cli transport. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.

timeout

integer

Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error. NX-API can be slow to return on long-running commands (sh mac, sh bgp, etc).

transport

string

Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device. The transport argument supports connectivity to the device over cli (ssh) or nxapi.

Choices:

  • cli ← (default)

  • nxapi

use_proxy

boolean

If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

use_ssl

boolean

Configures the transport to use SSL if set to yes only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

username

string

Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the nxapi authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.

validate_certs

boolean

If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not nxapi, this value is ignored.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

querier_timeout

string

Sets the querier timeout that the software uses when deciding to take over as the querier. Values can range from 1 to 65535 seconds or keyword ‘default’. The default is 255 seconds.

query_interval

string

Sets the frequency at which the software sends IGMP host query messages. Values can range from 1 to 18000 seconds or keyword ‘default’. The default is 125 seconds.

query_mrt

string

Sets the response time advertised in IGMP queries. Values can range from 1 to 25 seconds or keyword ‘default’. The default is 10 seconds.

report_llg

boolean

Configures report-link-local-groups. Enables sending reports for groups in 224.0.0.0/24. Reports are always sent for nonlink local groups. By default, reports are not sent for link local groups.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

restart

boolean

Restart IGMP. This is NOT idempotent as this is action only.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

robustness

string

Sets the robustness variable. Values can range from 1 to 7 or keyword ‘default’. The default is 2.

startup_query_count

string

Query count used when the IGMP process starts up. The range is from 1 to 10 or keyword ‘default’. The default is 2.

startup_query_interval

string

Query interval used when the IGMP process starts up. The range is from 1 to 18000 or keyword ‘default’. The default is 31.

state

string

Manages desired state of the resource.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

  • default

version

string

IGMP version. It can be 2 or 3 or keyword ‘default’.

Choices:

  • 2

  • 3

  • default

Notes

Note

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

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • When state=default, supported params will be reset to a default state. These include version, startup_query_interval, startup_query_count, robustness, querier_timeout, query_mrt, query_interval, last_member_qrt, last_member_query_count, group_timeout, report_llg, and immediate_leave.

  • When state=absent, all configs for oif_ps, and oif_routemap will be removed.

  • PIM must be enabled to use this module.

  • This module is for Layer 3 interfaces.

  • Route-map check not performed (same as CLI) check when configuring route-map with ‘static-oif’

  • If restart is set to true with other params set, the restart will happen last, i.e. after the configuration takes place. However, ‘restart’ itself is not idempotent as it is an action and not configuration.
