Synopsis

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

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults 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
    Choices:
  • fabric-tracking
  • dci-tracking
VxLAN evpn multisite Interface tracking. Supported only on selected model.
ipv4
list / elements=dictionary
IPv4 address and attributes of the L3 interface.
address
string
IPV4 address of the L3 interface.
secondary
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
A boolean attribute to manage addition of secondary IP address.
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
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables/disables ip redirects
unreachables
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables/disables ip redirects
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
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • overridden
  • deleted
  • gathered
  • rendered
  • parsed
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.

Notes

Note

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