To use it in a playbook, specify: ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_affinity_group.

New in version 1.0.0: of ovirt.ovirt

Synopsis

  • This module manage affinity groups in oVirt/RHV. It can also manage assignments of those groups to VMs.

insecure

boolean

A boolean flag that indicates if the server TLS certificate and host name should be checked.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

kerberos

boolean

string

The password of the user.

Default value is set by OVIRT_PASSWORD environment variable.

timeout

integer

Number of seconds to wait for response.

token

string

Token to be used instead of login with username/password.

Default value is set by OVIRT_TOKEN environment variable.

url

string / required

Name of the cluster of the affinity group.

description

string

Description of the affinity group.

fetch_nested

boolean

If True the module will fetch additional data from the API.

It will fetch IDs of the VMs disks, snapshots, etc. User can configure to fetch other attributes of the nested entities by specifying nested_attributes.

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

host_enforcing

boolean

If yes VM cannot start on host if it does not satisfy the host_rule.

This parameter is support since oVirt/RHV 4.1 version.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

host_rule

string

If positive all VMs in this group should run on the this host.

If negative no VMs in this group should run on the this host.

If disabled this affinity group doesn’t take effect.

This parameter is support since oVirt/RHV 4.1 version.

Choices:

  • disabled

  • negative

  • positive

hosts

list / elements=string

List of the hosts names, which should have assigned this affinity group.

This parameter is support since oVirt/RHV 4.1 version.

hosts_labels

list / elements=string

List of the hosts lable names, which should have assigned this affinity group.

name

string / required

Name of the affinity group to manage.

nested_attributes

list / elements=string

Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.

This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.

poll_interval

integer

Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.

Default: 3

state

string

Should the affinity group be present or absent.

Choices:

  • absent

  • present ← (default)

timeout

integer

The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.

Default: 180

vm_enforcing

boolean

If yes VM cannot start if it does not satisfy the vm_rule.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

vm_rule

string

If positive all VMs in this group should run on the host defined by host_rule.

If negative no VMs in this group should run on the host defined by host_rule.

If disabled this affinity group doesn’t take effect.

Choices:

  • disabled

  • negative

  • positive

vms

list / elements=string

List of the VMs names, which should have assigned this affinity group.

vms_labels

list / elements=string

List of the hosts lable names, which should have assigned this affinity group.

wait

boolean

yes if the module should wait for the entity to get into desired state.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

Notes

Note

  • In order to use this module you have to install oVirt Python SDK. To ensure it’s installed with correct version you can create the following task: pip: name=ovirt-engine-sdk-python version=4.4.0

Examples

# Examples don't contain auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication:

- name: Create(if not exists) and assign affinity group to VMs vm1 and vm2 and host host1
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_affinity_group:
    name: mygroup
    cluster: mycluster
    vm_enforcing: true
    vm_rule: positive
    host_enforcing: true
    host_rule: positive
    vms:
      - vm1
      - vm2
    hosts:
      - host1

- name: Detach VMs from affinity group and disable VM rule
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_affinity_group:
    name: mygroup
    cluster: mycluster
    vm_enforcing: false
    vm_rule: disabled
    host_enforcing: true
    host_rule: positive
    vms: []
    hosts:
      - host1
      - host2

- name: Remove affinity group
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_affinity_group:
    state: absent
    cluster: mycluster
    name: mygroup

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:
