cisco.nxos.nxos_lldp_interfaces module – LLDP interfaces resource module

Note

This module is part of the cisco.nxos collection (version 4.0.0).

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_lldp_interfaces.

New in cisco.nxos 1.0.0

Synopsis

  • This module manages interfaces’ configuration for Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) on NX-OS platforms.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A list of link layer discovery configurations for interfaces.

name

string / required

Name of the interface

receive

boolean

Used to enable or disable the reception of LLDP packets on that interface. By default, this is enabled after LLDP is enabled globally.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

tlv_set

dictionary

Used to configure TLV parameters on the interface

management_address

string

Used to mention the IPv4 or IPv6 management address for the interface

vlan

integer

Used to mention the VLAN for the interface

transmit

boolean

Used to enable or disable the transmission of LLDP packets on that interface. By default, this is enabled after LLDP is enabled globally.

Choices:

  • false

  • true

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 the configuration should be left in

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

  • The LLDP feature needs to be enabled before using this module

      transmit: true
      tlv_set:
        management_address: 192.168.122.64
      vlan: 12
    state: merged

# After state:
# -------------
#
# interface Ethernet1/4
#   no lldp receive
#   lldp tlv-set management-address 192.168.122.64
#   lldp tlv-set vlan 12


# Using replaced

# Before state:
# ------------
#
# interface Ethernet1/4
#   no lldp receive
#   lldp tlv-set management-address 192.168.122.64
# interface Ethernet1/5
#   no lldp transmit
#   lldp tlv-set vlan 10

- name: Replace LLDP configuration on interfaces with given configuration
  cisco.nxos.nxos_lldp_interfaces:
    config:
    - name: Ethernet1/4
      transmit: no
      tlv_set:
        vlan: 2
    state: replaced


# After state:
# -----------
#
# interface Ethernet1/4
#   no lldp transmit
#   lldp tlv_set vlan 2
# interface Ethernet1/5
#   no lldp transmit
#   lldp tlv-set vlan 10


# Using overridden

# Before state:
# ------------
#
# interface Ethernet1/4
#   no lldp receive
#   lldp tlv-set management-address 192.168.122.64
# interface Ethernet1/5
#   no lldp transmit
#   lldp tlv-set vlan 10

- name: Override LLDP configuration on all interfaces with given configuration
  cisco.nxos.nxos_lldp_interfaces:
    config:
    - name: Ethernet1/7
      receive: no
      tlv_set:
        vlan: 12
    state: overridden


# After state:
# -----------
#
# interface Ethernet1/7
#   no lldp receive
#   lldp tlv_set vlan 12


# Using deleted

# Before state:
# ------------
#
# interface Ethernet1/4
#   lldp tlv-set management vlan 24
#   no lldp transmit
# interface mgmt0
#   no lldp receive

- name: Delete LLDP interfaces configuration
  cisco.nxos.nxos_lldp_interfaces:
