dellos6_facts – Collect facts from remote devices running Dell EMC Networking OS6

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Collects a base set of device facts from a remote device that is running OS6. This module prepends all of the base network fact keys with ansible_net_<fact>. The facts module will always collect a base set of facts from the device and can enable or disable collection of additional facts.
