Synopsis

  • Module to manage data centers in oVirt/RHV

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.7

  • ovirt-engine-sdk-python >= 4.4.0

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

auth

dictionary / required

Dictionary with values needed to create HTTP/HTTPS connection to oVirt:

ca_file

string

A PEM file containing the trusted CA certificates.

The certificate presented by the server will be verified using these CA certificates.

If ca_file parameter is not set, system wide CA certificate store is used.

Default value is set by OVIRT_CAFILE environment variable.

compress

boolean

Flag indicating if compression is used for connection.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes ← (default)

headers

dictionary

Dictionary of HTTP headers to be added to each API call.

hostname

string

A string containing the hostname of the server, usually something like :emphasis:`server.example.com`.

Default value is set by OVIRT_HOSTNAME environment variable.

Either url or hostname is required.

insecure

boolean

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

Choices:

  • no ← (default)

  • yes

kerberos

boolean

A boolean flag indicating if Kerberos authentication should be used instead of the default basic authentication.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

password

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

A string containing the API URL of the server, usually something like :emphasis:`https://server.example.com/ovirt-engine/api`.

Default value is set by OVIRT_URL environment variable.

Either url or hostname is required.

username

string

The name of the user, something like admin@internal.

Default value is set by OVIRT_USERNAME environment variable.

comment

string

Comment of the data center.

compatibility_version

string

Compatibility version of the data center.

description

string

Description of the data center.

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

force

boolean

This parameter can be used only when removing a data center. If True data center will be forcibly removed, even though it contains some clusters. Default value is False, which means that only empty data center can be removed.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

id

string

ID of the datacenter to manage.

iscsi_bonds

list / elements=dictionary

List of iscsi bonds, which should be created in datacenter.

name

string

Name of the iscsi bond.

networks

list / elements=string

List of network names in bond.

storage_connections

list / elements=string

List of storage_connection IDs. Used when you want to use specific storage connection instead of all in storage domain.

Default: []

storage_domains

list / elements=string

List of storage domain names and it will automatically get all storage_connections in the domain.

Default: []

local

boolean

True if the data center should be local, False if should be shared.

Default value is set by engine.

Choices:

  • no

  • yes

mac_pool

string

MAC pool to be used by this datacenter.

IMPORTANT: This option is deprecated in oVirt/RHV 4.1. You should use mac_pool in ovirt_clusters module, as MAC pools are set per cluster since 4.1.

name

string / required

Name of the data center 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

quota_mode

string

Quota mode of the data center. One of disabled, audit or enabled

Choices:

  • disabled

  • audit

  • enabled

state

string

Should the data center be present or absent.

Choices:

  • present ← (default)

  • absent

timeout

integer

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

Default: 180

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:

# Create datacenter
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_datacenter:
    name: mydatacenter
    local: True
    compatibility_version: 4.0
    quota_mode: enabled

# Remove datacenter
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_datacenter:
    state: absent
    name: mydatacenter

# Change Datacenter Name
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_datacenter:
    id: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
    name: "new_datacenter_name"

# Create datacenter with iscsi bond
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_datacenter:
    name: mydatacenter
    iscsi_bonds:
      - name: bond1
        networks:
            - network1
            - network2
        storage_domains:
            - storage1
      - name: bond2
        networks:
            - network3
        storage_connections:
            - cf780201-6a4f-43c1-a019-e65c4220ab73

# Remove all iscsi bonds
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_datacenter:
    name: mydatacenter
    iscsi_bonds: []

Return Values
