cisco.nxos.nxos_lag_interfaces module – LAG interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the cisco.nxos collection (version 3.1.1).

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_lag_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.nxos

Synopsis

  • This module manages attributes of link aggregation groups of NX-OS Interfaces.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A list of link aggregation group configurations.

members

list / elements=dictionary

The list of interfaces that are part of the group.

force

boolean

When true it forces link aggregation group members to match what is declared in the members param. This can be used to remove members.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

member

string

The interface name.

mode

string

Link aggregation group (LAG).

Choices:

  • active

  • on

  • passive

name

string / required

Name of the link aggregation group (LAG).

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.

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

  • This module works with connection network_cli.
