Note

This module is part of the cisco.nxos collection (version 3.0.0).

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.nxos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: cisco.nxos.nxos_l3_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.nxos

Synopsis

  • This module manages Layer-3 interfaces attributes of NX-OS Interfaces.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary of Layer-3 interface options

dot1q

integer

Configures IEEE 802.1Q VLAN encapsulation on a subinterface.

evpn_multisite_tracking

string

added in 1.1.0 of cisco.nxos

VxLAN evpn multisite Interface tracking. Supported only on selected model.

Choices:

  • fabric-tracking

  • dci-tracking

ipv4

list / elements=dictionary

IPv4 address and attributes of the L3 interface.

address

string

IPV4 address of the L3 interface.

secondary

boolean

A boolean attribute to manage addition of secondary IP address.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

tag

integer

URIB route tag value for local/direct routes.

ipv6

list / elements=dictionary

IPv6 address and attributes of the L3 interface.

address

string

IPV6 address of the L3 interface.

tag

integer

URIB route tag value for local/direct routes.

name

string / required

Full name of L3 interface, i.e. Ethernet1/1.

redirects

boolean

Enables/disables ip redirects

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

unreachables

boolean

Enables/disables ip redirects

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the NX-OS device by executing the command show running-config | section ‘^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.

The state overridden would override the IP address configuration of all interfaces on the device with the provided configuration in the task. Use caution with this state as you may loose access to the device.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • rendered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

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

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS
