Synopsis

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

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

dictionary

LACP global options.

system

dictionary

LACP system options

mac

dictionary

MAC address to be used for the LACP Protocol exchanges

address

string

MAC-address (FORMAT :xxxx.xxxx.xxxx).

role

string

The role for the Switch.

Choices:

  • "primary"

  • "secondary"

priority

integer

The system priority to use in LACP negotiations.

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 | include 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"

  • "gathered"

  • "rendered"

  • "parsed"

Notes

Note

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

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • Feature lacp should be enabled for this module.
