Parameters

Parameter

Comments

interface

string / required

Full name of interface to be managed, i.e. Ethernet1/1.

string

Manages desired state of the resource.

Choices:

  • "present" ← (default)

  • "absent"

vrf

string / required

Name of VRF to be managed.

Notes

Note

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

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • VRF needs to be added globally with cisco.nxos.nxos_vrf before adding a VRF to an interface.

  • Remove a VRF from an interface will still remove all L3 attributes just as it does from CLI.

  • VRF is not read from an interface until IP address is configured on that interface.

  • For information on using CLI and NX-API see the :ref:`NXOS Platform Options guide <nxos_platform_options>`

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage network devices see the :ref:`Ansible Network Guide <network_guide>`
