netapp.ontap.na_ontap_net_ifgrp module – NetApp Ontap modify network interface group

Note

This module is part of the netapp.ontap collection (version 21.23.0).

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 netapp.ontap.

To use it in a playbook, specify: netapp.ontap.na_ontap_net_ifgrp.

New in version 2.6.0: of netapp.ontap

Synopsis

  • Create, modify ports, destroy the network interface group

Requirements

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

  • Ansible 2.9 or later - 2.12 or later is recommended.

  • Python3 - 3.9 or later is recommended.

  • When using ZAPI, netapp-lib 2018.11.13 or later (install using ‘pip install netapp-lib’), netapp-lib 2020.3.12 is strongly recommended as it provides better error reporting for connection issues

  • a physical or virtual clustered Data ONTAP system, the modules support Data ONTAP 9.1 and onward, REST support requires ONTAP 9.6 or later

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

broadcast_domain

string

added in 21.14.0 of netapp.ontap

Specify the broadcast_domain name.

Only supported with REST and is ignored with ZAPI.

Required with ONTAP 9.6 and 9.7, but optional with 9.8 or later.

cert_filepath

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

path to SSL client cert file (.pem).

not supported with python 2.6.

distribution_function

string

Specifies the traffic distribution function for the ifgrp.

Choices:

  • mac

  • ip

  • sequential

  • port

feature_flags

dictionary

added in 20.5.0 of netapp.ontap

Enable or disable a new feature.

This can be used to enable an experimental feature or disable a new feature that breaks backward compatibility.

Supported keys and values are subject to change without notice. Unknown keys are ignored.

force_ontap_version

string

added in 21.23.0 of netapp.ontap

Override the cluster ONTAP version when using REST.

The behavior is undefined if the version does not match the target cluster.

This is provided as a work-around when the cluster version cannot be read because of permission issues. See https://github.com/ansible-collections/netapp.ontap/wiki/Known-issues.

This should be in the form 9.10 or 9.10.1 with each element being an integer number.

When use_rest is set to auto, this may force a switch to ZAPI based on the version and platform capabilities.

Ignored with ZAPI.

from_lag_ports

list / elements=string

added in 2.14.0 of netapp.ontap

Only supported with REST and is ignored with ZAPI.

Specify all the ports to find current LAG port.

Ignored if LAG found with exact match of ports.

Example if current LAG has ports ['e0c','e0d'] and ports=['e0c','e0d'], then from_lag_ports will be ignored.

If LAG not found with ports, then ports in this list are used to find the current LAG.

Ports in this list are used only for finding current LAG, provide exact match of all the ports in the current LAG.

Ignored when state=absent.

hostname

string / required

The hostname or IP address of the ONTAP instance.

http_port

integer

Override the default port (80 or 443) with this port

https

boolean

Enable and disable https.

Ignored when using REST as only https is supported.

Ignored when using SSL certificate authentication as it requires SSL.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

ipspace

string

added in 21.14.0 of netapp.ontap

Specify the ipspace for the broadcast domain.

Only supported with REST and is ignored with ZAPI.

Required with ONTAP 9.6 and 9.7, but optional with 9.8 or later.

key_filepath

string

added in 20.6.0 of netapp.ontap

path to SSL client key file.

mode

string

Specifies the link policy for the ifgrp.

name

string

Specifies the interface group name.

Not supported with REST, use ports or from_lag_ports.

Required with ZAPI.

node

string / required

Specifies the name of node.

ontapi

integer

The ontap api version to use

password

aliases: pass

string

Password for the specified user.

ports

aliases: port

list / elements=string

added in 2.8.0 of netapp.ontap

List of expected ports to be present in the interface group.

If a port is present in this list, but not on the target, it will be added.

If a port is not in the list, but present on the target, it will be removed.

Make sure the list contains all ports you want to see on the target.

With REST, ports in this list are used to find the current LAG port.

If LAG is not found or only partial port matches, then from_lag_port are used to get the current LAG.

With REST, when state=absent is set, all of the ports in ifgrp should be provided to delete it.

Example ports=['e0c','e0a'] will delete ifgrp that has ports ['e0c','e0a'].

state

string

Whether the specified network interface group should exist or not.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

use_rest

string

Whether to use REST or ZAPI.

always – will always use the REST API if the module supports REST. A warning is issued if the module does not support REST. An error is issued if a module option is not supported in REST.

never – will always use ZAPI if the module supports ZAPI. An error may be issued if a REST option is not supported in ZAPI.

auto – will try to use the REST API if the module supports REST and modules options are supported. Reverts to ZAPI otherwise.

Default: “auto”

username

aliases: user

string

This can be a Cluster-scoped or SVM-scoped account, depending on whether a Cluster-level or SVM-level API is required.

For more information, please read the documentation https://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/download/software/nmsdk/9.4/.

Two authentication methods are supported

  1. basic authentication, using username and password,

  2. SSL certificate authentication, using a ssl client cert file, and optionally a private key file.

To use a certificate, the certificate must have been installed in the ONTAP cluster, and cert authentication must have been enabled.

validate_certs

boolean

If set to no, the SSL certificates will not be validated.

This should only set to False used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • The modules prefixed with na_ontap are built to support the ONTAP storage platform.

  • https is enabled by default and recommended. To enable http on the cluster you must run the following commands ‘set -privilege advanced;’ ‘system services web modify -http-enabled true;’
