Note

This module is part of the junipernetworks.junos collection (version 2.10.0).

You might already have this collection installed if you are using the ansible package. It is not included in ansible-core. To check whether it is installed, run ansible-galaxy collection list.

To install it, use: ansible-galaxy collection install junipernetworks.junos.

To use it in a playbook, specify: junipernetworks.junos.junos_lacp_interfaces.

New in version 1.0.0: of junipernetworks.junos

Synopsis

  • This module manages Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) attributes of interfaces on Juniper JUNOS devices.

Note

This module has a corresponding action plugin.

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

config

list / elements=dictionary

The list of dictionaries of LACP interfaces options.

force_up

boolean

This is a boolean argument to control if the port should be up in absence of received link Aggregation Control Protocol Data Unit (LACPDUS). This value is applicable for member interfaces only.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

name

string

Name Identifier of the interface or link aggregation group.

period

string

Timer interval for periodic transmission of LACP packets. If the value is set to fast the packets are received every second and if the value is slow the packets are received every 30 seconds. This value is applicable for aggregate interface only.

Choices:

  • fast

  • slow

port_priority

integer

Priority of the member port. This value is applicable for member interfaces only.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

sync_reset

string

The argument notifies minimum-link failure out of sync to peer. If the value is disable it disables minimum-link failure handling at LACP level and if value is enable it enables minimum-link failure handling at LACP level. This value is applicable for aggregate interface only.

Choices:

  • disable

  • enable

system

dictionary

This dict object contains configurable options related to LACP system parameters for the link aggregation group. This value is applicable for aggregate interface only.

mac

dictionary

Specifies the system ID to use in LACP negotiations for the bundle, encoded as a MAC address.

address

string

The system ID to use in LACP negotiations.

priority

integer

Specifies the system priority to use in LACP negotiations for the bundle.

Refer to vendor documentation for valid values.

running_config

string

This option is used only with state parsed.

The value of this option should be the output received from the Junos device by executing the command show interface.

The state parsed reads the configuration from running_config option and transforms it into Ansible structured data as per the resource module’s argspec and the value is then returned in the parsed key within the result.

state

string

The state of the configuration after module completion.

Choices:

  • merged ← (default)

  • replaced

  • overridden

  • deleted

  • gathered

  • parsed

  • rendered
