Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • ncclient (>=v0.5.2)

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

active

boolean

Specifies whether or not the configuration is active or deactivated

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

hold_multiplier

integer

Specify the number of seconds that LLDP information is held before it is discarded. The multiplier value is used in combination with the interval value.

interval

integer

Frequency at which LLDP advertisements are sent (in seconds).

provider

dictionary

Deprecated

Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli or connection: netconf.

For more information please see the Junos OS Platform Options guide.


A dict object containing connection details.

host

string

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

integer

Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. The port value will default to the well known SSH port of 22 (for transport=cli) or port 830 (for transport=netconf) device.

ssh_keyfile

path

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_KEYFILE will be used instead.

timeout

integer

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.

transport

string

Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.

Choices:

  • cli

  • netconf ← (default)

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

Value of present ensures given LLDP configuration is present on device and LLDP is enabled, for value of absent LLDP configuration is deleted and LLDP is in disabled state. Value enabled ensures LLDP protocol is enabled and LLDP configuration if any is configured on remote device, for value of disabled it ensures LLDP protocol is disabled any LLDP configuration if any is still present.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

  • enabled

  • disabled

transmit_delay

integer

Specify the number of seconds the device waits before sending advertisements to neighbors after a change is made in local system.

Notes

Note

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

  • Tested against vSRX JUNOS version 15.1X49-D15.4, vqfx-10000 JUNOS Version 15.1X53-D60.4.

  • Recommended connection is netconf. See the Junos OS Platform Options.

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

  • For information on using CLI and netconf see the Junos OS Platform Options guide
