Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments

A dictionary of zfs properties to be set.

Snapshot from which to create a clone.
state
string / required
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present
Whether to create (present), or remove (absent) a file system, snapshot or volume. All parents/children will be created/destroyed as needed to reach the desired state.

Notes

Note

  • check_mode is supported, but in certain situations it may report a task as changed that will not be reported as changed when check_mode is disabled. For example, this might occur when the zpool altroot option is set or when a size is written using human-readable notation, such as 1M or 1024K, instead of as an unqualified byte count, such as 1048576.
