enable
string
    Choices:
  • enable
  • disable
Set interface DLDP enable state.
interface
string / required
Must be fully qualified interface name, i.e. GE1/0/1, 10GE1/0/1, 40GE1/0/22, 100GE1/0/1.
local_mac
string
Set the source MAC address for DLDP packets sent in the DLDP-compatible mode. The value of MAC address is in H-H-H format. H contains 1 to 4 hexadecimal digits.
mode_enable
string
    Choices:
  • enable
  • disable
Set DLDP compatible-mode enable state.
reset
string
    Choices:
  • enable
  • disable
Specify whether reseting interface DLDP state.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Manage the state of the resource.

Notes

Note

  • If state=present, enable=disable, interface DLDP enable will be turned off and related interface DLDP configuration will be cleared.

  • If state=absent, only local_mac is supported to configure.

  • This module requires the netconf system service be enabled on the remote device being managed.

  • Recommended connection is netconf.

  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.
