Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments

Notes

Note

  • For the main IPv4 address of a server, deleting it actually sets it to a default hostname like static.X.Y.Z.W.clients.your-server.de. This substitution (delete is replaced by changing to this value) is done automatically by the API and results in the module not being idempotent in this case.
