nxos_pim_interface – Manages PIM interface configuration.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manages PIM interface configuration settings.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
border
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Configures interface to be a boundary of a PIM domain.
dr_prio
-
Configures priority for PIM DR election on interface.
hello_auth_key
-
Authentication for hellos on this interface.
hello_interval
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Hello interval in milliseconds for this interface.
interface
- / required
Full name of the interface such as Ethernet1/33.
jp_policy_in
-
Policy for join-prune messages (inbound).
jp_policy_out
-
Policy for join-prune messages (outbound).
jp_type_in
-
    Choices:
  • prefix
  • routemap
Type of policy mapped to jp_policy_in.
jp_type_out
-
    Choices:
  • prefix
  • routemap
Type of policy mapped to jp_policy_out.
neighbor_policy
-
Configures a neighbor policy for filtering adjacencies.
neighbor_type
-
    Choices:
  • prefix
  • routemap
Type of policy mapped to neighbor_policy.
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.
sparse
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Enable/disable sparse-mode on the interface.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • default
Manages desired state of the resource.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL
  • When state=default, supported params will be reset to a default state. These include dr_prio, hello_auth_key, hello_interval, jp_policy_out, jp_policy_in, jp_type_in, jp_type_out, border, neighbor_policy, neighbor_type.
  • The hello_auth_key param is not idempotent.
  • hello_auth_key only supports clear text passwords.
  • When state=absent, pim interface configuration will be set to defaults and pim-sm will be disabled on the interface.
  • PIM must be enabled on the device to use this module.
  • This module is for Layer 3 interfaces.
  • 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.

Examples

# ensure PIM is not running on the interface
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    state: absent

# ensure the interface has pim-sm enabled with the appropriate priority and hello interval
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    dr_prio: 10
    hello_interval: 40
    state: present

# ensure join-prune policies exist
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    jp_policy_in: JPIN
    jp_policy_out: JPOUT
    jp_type_in: routemap
    jp_type_out: routemap

# ensure defaults are in place
- nxos_pim_interface:
    interface: eth1/33
    state: default
