Synopsis

  • Module to manage vNIC profile of network 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 Choices/Defaults 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
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
Flag indicating if compression is used for connection.
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 `server.example.com`.
Default value is set by OVIRT_HOSTNAME environment variable.
Either url or hostname is required.
insecure
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
A boolean flag that indicates if the server TLS certificate and host name should be checked.
kerberos
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
A boolean flag indicating if Kerberos authentication should be used instead of the default basic authentication.
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 `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 [email protected].
Default value is set by OVIRT_USERNAME environment variable.
custom_properties
list / elements=dictionary
Custom properties applied to the vNIC profile.
Custom properties is a list of dictionary which can have following values:
name
string
Name of the custom property. For example: hugepages, vhost, sap_agent, etc.
regexp
string
Regular expression to set for custom property.
value
string
Value to set for custom property.
data_center
string / required
Datacenter name where network reside.
description
string
A human-readable description in plain text.
fetch_nested
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
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.
migratable
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Marks whether pass_through NIC is migratable or not.
name
string / required
A human-readable name in plain text.
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.
network
string / required
Name of network to which is vNIC attached.
network_filter
string
The network filter enables to filter packets send to/from the VM's nic according to defined rules.
pass_through
string
    Choices:
  • disabled
  • enabled
Enables passthrough to an SR-IOV-enabled host NIC.
When enabled qos and network_filter are automatically set to None and port_mirroring to False.
When enabled and migratable not specified then migratable is enabled.
Port mirroring, QoS and network filters are not supported on passthrough profiles.
poll_interval
integer
Default:
3
Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.
port_mirroring
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables port mirroring.
qos
string
Quality of Service attributes regulate inbound and outbound network traffic of the NIC.
state
string
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present ←
Should the vNIC be absent/present.
timeout
integer
Default:
180
The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
yes if the module should wait for the entity to get into desired state.

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: Add vNIC
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_vnic_profile:
    name: myvnic
    network: mynetwork
    state: present
    data_center: datacenter

- name: Editing vNICs network_filter, custom_properties, qos
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_vnic_profile:
    name: myvnic
    network: mynetwork
    data_center: datacenter
    qos: myqos
    custom_properties:
      - name: SecurityGroups
        value: 9bd9bde9-39da-44a8-9541-aa39e1a81c9d
    network_filter: allow-dhcp

- name: Remove vNICs network_filter, custom_properties, qos
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_vnic_profile:
    name: myvnic
    network: mynetwork
    data_center: datacenter
    qos: ""
    custom_properties: ""
    network_filter: ""

- name: Dont use migratable
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_vnic_profile:
    name: myvnic
    network: mynetwork
    data_center: datacenter
    migratable: False
    pass_through: enabled

- name: Remove vNIC
  ovirt.ovirt.ovirt_vnic_profile:
    name: myvnic
    network: mynetwork
    state: absent
    data_center: datacenter

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
