Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
config
dictionary
LACP global options.
system
dictionary
LACP system options
mac
dictionary
MAC address to be used for the LACP Protocol exchanges
address

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
    Choices:
  • merged ←
  • replaced
  • deleted
  • gathered
  • rendered
  • parsed
The state of the configuration after module completion.
