nxos_ospf_vrf - Manages a VRF for an OSPF router.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manages a VRF for an OSPF router.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
auto_cost Default:
None
Specifies the reference bandwidth used to assign OSPF cost. Valid values are an integer, in Mbps, or the keyword 'default'.
default_metric Default:
None
Specify the default Metric value. Valid values are an integer or the keyword 'default'.
log_adjacency
    Choices:
  • log
  • detail
  • default
Default:
None
Controls the level of log messages generated whenever a neighbor changes state. Valid values are 'log', 'detail', and 'default'.
ospf
required
Default:
None
Name of the OSPF instance.
passive_interface
(added in 2.4)
    Choices:
  • true
  • false
Default:
None
Setting to true will suppress routing update on interface. Valid values are 'true' and 'false'.
provider Default:
None
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.
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.
authorize
(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.
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.
use_proxy
(added in 2.5)
    Choices:
  • yes ←
  • no
If no, the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy will be ignored.
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.
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.
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).
use_ssl
    Choices:
  • yes
  • no ←
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to true only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.
password Default:
None
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.
validate_certs
    Choices:
  • yes
  • no
Default:
None
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.
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).
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.
router_id Default:
None
Router Identifier (ID) of the OSPF router VRF instance.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
State of ospf vrf configuration.
timer_throttle_lsa_hold Default:
None
Specify the hold interval for rate-limiting Link-State Advertisement (LSA) generation. Valid values are an integer, in milliseconds, or the keyword 'default'.
timer_throttle_lsa_max Default:
None
Specify the max interval for rate-limiting Link-State Advertisement (LSA) generation. Valid values are an integer, in milliseconds, or the keyword 'default'.
timer_throttle_lsa_start Default:
None
Specify the start interval for rate-limiting Link-State Advertisement (LSA) generation. Valid values are an integer, in milliseconds, or the keyword 'default'.
timer_throttle_spf_hold Default:
None
Specify minimum hold time between Shortest Path First (SPF) calculations. Valid values are an integer, in milliseconds, or the keyword 'default'.
timer_throttle_spf_max Default:
None
Specify the maximum wait time between Shortest Path First (SPF) calculations. Valid values are an integer, in milliseconds, or the keyword 'default'.
timer_throttle_spf_start Default:
None
Specify initial Shortest Path First (SPF) schedule delay. Valid values are an integer, in milliseconds, or the keyword 'default'.
vrf Default:
default
Name of the resource instance. Valid value is a string. The name 'default' is a valid VRF representing the global OSPF.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL
  • Value default restores params default value, if any. Otherwise it removes the existing param configuration.
  • 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
  • For more information on using Ansible to manage Cisco devices see the Cisco integration page.
