address
string
Host address. It can be either FQDN (preferred) or IP address.
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.

    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Indicates that the host should be removed even if it is non-responsive, or if it is part of a Gluster Storage cluster and has volume bricks on it.

PCI Reallocation: pci=realloc
Note:
Modifying kernel boot parameters settings can lead to a host boot failure. Please consult the product documentation before doing any changes.
Kernel boot parameters changes require host deploy and restart. The host needs to be reinstalled successfully and then to be rebooted for kernel boot parameters to be applied.

3
Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.

- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_host:
    state: absent
    name: myhost
  register: result

  retries: 6
  delay: 20

# Change host Name
