Notes

Note

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

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • Either vpc or peer_link param is required, but not both.

  • state=absent removes whatever VPC config is on a port-channel if one exists.

  • Re-assigning a vpc or peerlink from one portchannel to another is not supported. The module will force the user to unconfigure an existing vpc/pl before configuring the same value on a new portchannel
