state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • enabled
  • disabled
Value of present ensures given LLDP configured on given interfaces and is enabled, for value of absent LLDP configuration on given interfaces deleted. Value enabled ensures LLDP protocol is enabled on given interfaces and for value of disabled it ensures LLDP is disabled on given interfaces.

Notes

  • Tested against vSRX JUNOS version 15.1X49-D15.4, vqfx-10000 JUNOS Version 15.1X53-D60.4.
  • Recommended connection is netconf. See the Junos OS Platform Options.
  • This module also works with local connections for legacy playbooks.
  • For information on using CLI and netconf see the Junos OS Platform Options guide
