timers are not modifiable with this attribute

mutually exclusive with auto_recovery_reload_delay

Choices:

  • false

  • true

auto_recovery_reload_delay

string

Manages auto-recovery reload-delay timer in seconds

mutually exclusive with auto_recovery

delay_restore

string

delay_restore_interface_vlan

string

domain

string / required

VPC domain

peer_gw

boolean

Enables/Disables peer gateway

Choices:

  • false

  • true

pkl_dest

string

Destination (remote) IP address used for peer keepalive link

pkl_dest is required whenever pkl options are used.

pkl_src

string

Source IP address used for peer keepalive link

pkl_vrf

string

VRF used for peer keepalive link

The VRF must exist on the device before using pkl_vrf.

(Note) ‘default’ is an overloaded term: Default vrf context for pkl_vrf is ‘management’; ‘pkl_vrf: default’ refers to the literal ‘default’ rib.

role_priority

string

Role priority for device. Remember lower is better.

state

string

Manages desired state of the resource

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

system_priority

string

System priority device. Remember they must match between peers.

Notes

Note

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

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • The feature vpc must be enabled before this module can be used

  • If not using management vrf, vrf must be globally on the device before using in the pkl config

  • Although source IP isn’t required on the command line it is required when using this module. The PKL VRF must also be configured prior to using this module.

  • Both pkl_src and pkl_dest are needed when changing PKL VRF.
