aci_domain – Manage physical, virtual, bridged, routed or FC domain profiles (phys:DomP, vmm:DomP, l2ext:DomP, l3ext:DomP, fc:DomP)

New in version 2.5.

Synopsis

  • Manage physical, virtual, bridged, routed or FC domain profiles on Cisco ACI fabrics.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
certificate_name
string
The X.509 certificate name attached to the APIC AAA user used for signature-based authentication.
If a private_key filename was provided, this defaults to the private_key basename, without extension.
If PEM-formatted content was provided for private_key, this defaults to the username value.

l2dom: The external bridged domain profile is a policy for managing L2 bridged infrastructure bridged outside the fabric.
l3dom: The external routed domain profile is a policy for managing L3 routed infrastructure outside the fabric.
phys: The physical domain profile stores the physical resources and encap resources that should be used for EPGs associated with this domain.
vmm: The VMM domain profile is a policy for grouping VM controllers with similar networking policy requirements.
