A dict object containing connection details.

auth_pass

string

Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.

authorize

boolean

Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

host

string

Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.

password

string

Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or nxapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.

port

integer

Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or nxapi. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, http=80, https=443).

ssh_keyfile

string

Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for the cli transport. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.

timeout

integer

Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error. NX-API can be slow to return on long-running commands (sh mac, sh bgp, etc).

transport

string

Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device. The transport argument supports connectivity to the device over cli (ssh) or nxapi.

Choices:

  • cli ← (default)

  • nxapi

use_proxy

boolean

If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

use_ssl

boolean

Configures the transport to use SSL if set to yes only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

username

string

Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the nxapi authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.

validate_certs

boolean

If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not nxapi, this value is ignored.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

snmp_host

string / required

IP address of hostname of target host.

snmp_type

string

type of message to send to host. If this is not specified, trap type is used.

Choices:

  • trap

  • inform

src_intf

string

Source interface. Must be fully qualified interface name. If state = absent, the interface is removed.

state

string

Manage the state of the resource. If state = present, the host is added to the configuration. If only vrf and/or vrf_filter and/or src_intf are given, they will be added to the existing host configuration. If state = absent, the host is removed if community parameter is given. It is possible to remove only vrf and/or src_int and/or vrf_filter by providing only those parameters and no community parameter.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

udp

string

UDP port number (0-65535).

Default: “162”

v3

string

Use this when verion is v3. SNMPv3 Security level.

Choices:

  • noauth

  • auth

  • priv

version

string

SNMP version. If this is not specified, v1 is used.

Choices:

  • v1

  • v2c

  • v3

vrf

string

VRF to use to source traffic to source. If state = absent, the vrf is removed.

vrf_filter

string

Name of VRF to filter. If state = absent, the vrf is removed from the filter.

Notes

Note

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

  • Limited Support for Cisco MDS

  • state=absent removes the host configuration if it is configured.
