Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of Layer-2 interfaces on Lenovo CNOS devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
access_vlan
string
Configure given VLAN in access port. If mode=access, used as the access VLAN ID.
aggregate
string
List of Layer-2 interface definitions.
mode
string
    Choices:
  • access ←
  • trunk
Mode in which interface needs to be configured.
name
string / required
Full name of the interface excluding any logical unit number, i.e. Ethernet1/3.

aliases: interface
native_vlan
string
Native VLAN to be configured in trunk port. If mode=trunk, used as the trunk native VLAN ID.
provider
string
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
For more information please see the CNOS 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 / required
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 value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
string
Default:
22
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device.
ssh_keyfile
string
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILEwill be used instead.
timeout
string
Default:
10
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.
username
string
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • unconfigured
Manage the state of the Layer-2 Interface configuration.
trunk_allowed_vlans
string
List of allowed VLANs in a given trunk port. If mode=trunk, these are the only VLANs that will be configured on the trunk, i.e. "2-10,15".
trunk_vlans
string
List of VLANs to be configured in trunk port. If mode=trunk, used as the VLAN range to ADD or REMOVE from the trunk.

Examples

- name: Ensure Ethernet1/5 is in its default l2 interface state
  community.network.cnos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1/5
    state: unconfigured

- name: Ensure Ethernet1/5 is configured for access vlan 20
  community.network.cnos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1/5
    mode: access
    access_vlan: 20

- name: Ensure Ethernet1/5 only has vlans 5-10 as trunk vlans
  community.network.cnos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1/5
    mode: trunk
    native_vlan: 10
    trunk_vlans: 5-10

- name: Ensure Ethernet1/5 is a trunk port and ensure 2-50 are being tagged
        (doesn't mean others aren't also being tagged)
  community.network.cnos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1/5
    mode: trunk
    native_vlan: 10
    trunk_vlans: 2-50

- name: Ensure these VLANs are not being tagged on the trunk
  community.network.cnos_l2_interface:
    name: Ethernet1/5
    mode: trunk
    trunk_vlans: 51-4094
    state: absent
