Parameters

Parameter

Comments

ca_path

path

added in 5.0.0 of dellemc.openmanage

The Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) file that contains a CA certificate to be used for the validation.

dns_configuration

dictionary

Domain Name System(DNS) settings.

dns_domain_name

string

Static DNS domain name

This is applicable when use_dhcp_for_dns_domain_name is false.

dns_name

string

DNS name for hostname

This is applicable when register_with_dns is true.

register_with_dns

boolean

Register/Unregister dns_name on the DNS Server.

This option cannot be updated if vLAN configuration changes.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

use_dhcp_for_dns_domain_name

boolean

Get the dns_domain_name using a DHCP server.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

enable_nic

boolean

Enable or disable Network Interface Card (NIC) configuration.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

hostname

string / required

OpenManage Enterprise or OpenManage Enterprise Modular IP address or hostname.

interface_name

string

If there are multiple interfaces, network configuration changes can be applied to a single interface using the interface name of the NIC.

If this option is not specified, Primary interface is chosen by default.

ipv4_configuration

dictionary

IPv4 network configuration.

Warning Ensure that you have an alternate interface to access OpenManage Enterprise as these options can change the current IPv4 address for hostname.

enable

boolean / required

Enable or disable access to the network using IPv4.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

enable_dhcp

boolean

Enable or disable the automatic request to get an IPv4 address from the IPv4 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server

If enable_dhcp option is true, OpenManage Enterprise retrieves the IP configuration—IPv4 address, subnet mask, and gateway from a DHCP server on the existing network.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

static_alternate_dns_server

string

Static IPv4 DNS alternate server

This option is applicable when use_dhcp_for_dns_server_names is false.

static_gateway

string

Static IPv4 gateway address

This option is applicable when enable_dhcp is false.

static_ip_address

string

Static IPv4 address

This option is applicable when enable_dhcp is false.

static_preferred_dns_server

string

Static IPv4 DNS preferred server

This option is applicable when use_dhcp_for_dns_server_names is false.

static_subnet_mask

string

Static IPv4 subnet mask address

This option is applicable when enable_dhcp is false.

use_dhcp_for_dns_server_names

boolean

This option allows to automatically request and obtain a DNS server IPv4 address from the DHCP server.

This option is applicable when enable_dhcp is true.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

ipv6_configuration

dictionary

IPv6 network configuration.

Warning Ensure that you have an alternate interface to access OpenManage Enterprise as these options can change the current IPv6 address for hostname.

enable

boolean / required

Enable or disable access to the network using the IPv6.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

enable_auto_configuration

boolean

Enable or disable the automatic request to get an IPv6 address from the IPv6 DHCP server or router advertisements(RA)

If enable_auto_configuration is true, OME retrieves IP configuration-IPv6 address, prefix, and gateway, from a DHCPv6 server on the existing network

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

static_alternate_dns_server

string

Static IPv6 DNS alternate server

This option is applicable when use_dhcp_for_dns_server_names is false.

static_gateway

string

vLAN configuration.

These settings are applicable for OpenManage Enterprise Modular.

enable_vlan

boolean / required

Enable or disable vLAN for management.

The vLAN configuration cannot be updated if the register_with_dns field under dns_configuration is true.

WARNING Ensure that the network cable is plugged to the correct port after the vLAN configuration changes have been made. If not, the configuration change may not be effective.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

vlan_id

integer

vLAN ID.

This option is applicable when enable_vlan is true.

password

string / required

OpenManage Enterprise or OpenManage Enterprise Modular password.

port

integer

OpenManage Enterprise or OpenManage Enterprise Modular HTTPS port.

Default: 443

reboot_delay

integer

The time in seconds, after which settings are applied.

This option is not mandatory.

timeout

integer

added in 5.0.0 of dellemc.openmanage

The socket level timeout in seconds.

Default: 30

username

string / required

OpenManage Enterprise or OpenManage Enterprise Modular username.

validate_certs

boolean

added in 5.0.0 of dellemc.openmanage

If False, the SSL certificates will not be validated.

Configure False only on personally controlled sites where self-signed certificates are used.

Prior to collection version 5.0.0, the validate_certs is False by default.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • The configuration changes can only be applied to one interface at a time.

  • The system management consoles might be unreachable for some time after the configuration changes are applied.

  • This module supports check_mode.
