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_static_routes.

New in version 1.0.0: of cisco.nxos

Synopsis

  • This module configures and manages the attributes of static routes on Cisco NX-OS platforms.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

A list of configurations for static routes

address_families

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary specifying the address family to which the static route(s) belong.

afi

string / required

Specifies the top level address family indicator.

Choices:

  • ipv4

  • ipv6

routes

list / elements=dictionary

A dictionary that specifies the static route configurations

dest

string / required

Destination prefix of static route

The address format is <ipv4/v6 address>/<mask>

The mask is number in range 0-32 for IPv4 and in range 0-128 for IPv6

next_hops

list / elements=dictionary

Details of route to be taken

admin_distance

integer

Preference or administrative distance of route (range 1-255)

dest_vrf

string

VRF of the destination

forward_router_address

string

IP address of the next hop router

interface

string

Outgoing interface to take. For anything except ‘Null0’, then next hop IP address should also be configured.

route_name

string

Name of the static route

tag

integer

Route tag value (numeric)

track

integer

Track value (range 1 - 512). Track must already be configured on the device before adding the route.

vrf

string

The VRF to which the static route(s) belong

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 following commands in order show running-config | include ‘^ip(v6* route’) and show running-config | section ‘^vrf context’.

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:

  • deleted

  • merged ← (default)

  • overridden

  • replaced

  • gathered

  • rendered

  • parsed

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NX-OS 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • When a route is configured for a non-existent VRF, the VRF is created and the route is added to it.

  • When deleting routes for a VRF, all routes inside the VRF are deleted, but the VRF is not deleted.
