nxos_ip_interface – Manages L3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces.

New in version 2.1.

DEPRECATED

Removed in Ansible:
 version: 2.9
Why:Replaced with common *_l3_interface network modules.
Alternative:Use nxos_l3_interface instead.

Synopsis

  • Manages Layer 3 attributes for IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.

  • ipaddress

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
addr
-
IPv4 or IPv6 Address.
allow_secondary
boolean
added in 2.4
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Allow to configure IPv4 secondary addresses on interface.
dot1q
-
added in 2.5
Configures IEEE 802.1Q VLAN encapsulation on the subinterface. The range is from 2 to 4093.
interface
- / required
Full name of interface, i.e. Ethernet1/1, vlan10.
mask
-
Subnet mask for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in decimal format.
provider
-
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
This option is only required if you are using NX-API.
For more information please see the NXOS Platform Options guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
auth_pass
-
added in 2.5.3
Default:
none
Specifies the password to use if required to enter privileged mode on the remote device. If authorize is false, then this argument does nothing. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTH_PASS will be used instead.
authorize
boolean
added in 2.5.3
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Instructs the module to enter privileged mode on the remote device before sending any commands. If not specified, the device will attempt to execute all commands in non-privileged mode. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_AUTHORIZE will be used instead.
host
- / required
Specifies the DNS host name or address for connecting to the remote device over the specified transport. The value of host is used as the destination address for the transport.
password
-
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This is a common argument used for either cli or nxapi transports. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
-
Default:
0 (use common port)
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device. This value applies to either cli or nxapi. The port value will default to the appropriate transport common port if none is provided in the task. (cli=22, http=80, https=443).
ssh_keyfile
-
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This argument is only used for the cli transport. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
-
added in 2.3
Default:
10
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error. NX-API can be slow to return on long-running commands (sh mac, sh bgp, etc).
transport
- / required
Default:
cli
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device. The transport argument supports connectivity to the device over cli (ssh) or nxapi.
use_proxy
boolean
added in 2.5
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
use_ssl
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to true only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.
username
-
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate either the CLI login or the nxapi authentication depending on which transport is used. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If no, SSL certificates will not be validated. This should only be used on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates. If the transport argument is not nxapi, this value is ignored.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
tag
-
added in 2.4
Default:
0
Route tag for IPv4 or IPv6 Address in integer format.
version
-
    Choices:
  • v4 ←
  • v6
Version of IP address. If the IP address is IPV4 version should be v4. If the IP address is IPV6 version should be v6.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL
  • Interface must already be a L3 port when using this module.
  • Logical interfaces (po, loop, svi) 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.
  • tag is not idempotent for IPv6 addresses and I2 system image.
  • For information on using CLI and NX-API see the NXOS Platform Options guide
  • For more information on using Ansible to manage network devices see the Ansible Network Guide
