Starting with Ansible 2.6 we recommend using connection: httpapi for NX-API.
This option will be removed in a release after 2022-06-01.
For more information please see the NXOS Platform Options guide.

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
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
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.
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
    Choices:
  • cli ←
  • nxapi
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.
use_proxy
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to yes only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.
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
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
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.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
vip
string
VRRP virtual IP address or 'default' keyword

Notes

Note

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

  • VRRP feature needs to be enabled first on the system.

  • SVIs must exist before using this module.

  • Interface must be a L3 port before using this module.

  • state=absent removes the VRRP group if it exists on the device.

  • VRRP cannot be configured on loopback interfaces.

  • For information on using CLI and NX-API see the NXOS Platform Options guide

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage network devices see the Ansible Network Guide

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage Cisco devices see the Cisco integration page.

Examples

- name: Ensure vrrp group 100 and vip 10.1.100.1 is on vlan10
  cisco.nxos.nxos_vrrp:
    interface: vlan10
    group: 100
    vip: 10.1.100.1

- name: Ensure removal of the vrrp group config
  cisco.nxos.nxos_vrrp:
    interface: vlan10
    group: 100
    vip: 10.1.100.1
    state: absent
