ce_ip_interface – Manages L3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • Manages Layer 3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces on HUAWEI CloudEngine switches.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
addr
-
IPv4 or IPv6 Address.
interface
- / required
Full name of interface, i.e. 40GE1/0/22, vlanif10.
ipv4_type
-
    Choices:
  • main ←
  • sub
Specifies an address type. The value is an enumerated type. main, primary IP address. sub, secondary IP address.
mask
-
Subnet mask for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in decimal format.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
version
-
    Choices:
  • v4 ←
  • v6
IP address version.

Notes

Note

  • Interface must already be a L3 port when using this module.
  • Logical interfaces (loopback, vlanif) must be created first.
  • mask must be inserted in decimal format (i.e. 24) for both IPv6 and IPv4.
  • A single interface can have multiple IPv6 configured.

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
changed
boolean
always
check to see if a change was made on the device

Sample:
True
end_state
dictionary
always
k/v pairs of IP attributes after module execution

Sample:
{'ipv4': [{'ifIpAddr': '20.20.20.20', 'subnetMask': '255.255.255.0', 'addrType': 'main'}], 'interface': '10GE1/0/22'}
existing
dictionary
always
k/v pairs of existing IP attributes on the interface

Sample:
{'ipv4': [{'ifIpAddr': '11.11.11.11', 'subnetMask': '255.255.0.0', 'addrType': 'main'}], 'interface': '10GE1/0/22'}
proposed
dictionary
always
k/v pairs of parameters passed into module

Sample:
{'addr': '20.20.20.20', 'interface': '10GE1/0/22', 'mask': '24'}
updates
list
always
commands sent to the device

Sample:
['interface 10GE1/0/22', 'ip address 20.20.20.20 24']
