  • python >= 2.7

  • ovirt-engine-sdk-python >= 4.4.0

Parameters

Parameter

Comments

Choices:

  • false

  • true

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

Default value is set by OVIRT_USERNAME environment variable.

description

string

Description of the MAC pool.

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:

  • false ← (default)

  • true

id

string

ID of the mac pool to manage.

name

string / required

Name of the MAC pool 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

ranges

list / elements=string

List of MAC ranges. The from and to should be split by comma.

For example: 00:1a:4a:16:01:51,00:1a:4a:16:01:61

state

string

Should the mac pool 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:

  • false

  • true ← (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 MAC pool:
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_mac_pool:
    name: mymacpool
    allow_duplicates: false
    ranges:
      - 00:1a:4a:16:01:51,00:1a:4a:16:01:61
      - 00:1a:4a:16:02:51,00:1a:4a:16:02:61

# Remove MAC pool:
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_mac_pool:
    state: absent
    name: mymacpool

# Change MAC pool Name
- ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_nic:
    id: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
    name: "new_mac_pool_name"

Return Values

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

Key

Description

id

string

ID of the MAC pool which is managed

Returned: On success if MAC pool is found.

Sample: "7de90f31-222c-436c-a1ca-7e655bd5b60c"

template

dictionary

Dictionary of all the MAC pool attributes. MAC pool attributes can be found on your oVirt/RHV instance at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/mac_pool.

Returned: On success if MAC pool is found.
