New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manages global VPC configuration

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
auto_recovery
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables/Disables auto recovery
delay_restore
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
manages delay restore command and config value in seconds
domain
- / required
VPC domain
peer_gw
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Enables/Disables peer gateway
pkl_dest
-
Destination (remote) IP address used for peer keepalive link
pkl_src
-
Source IP address used for peer keepalive link
pkl_vrf
-
Default:
management
VRF used for peer keepalive link
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.
role_priority
-
Role priority for device. Remember lower is better.
state
- / required
    Choices:
  • present
  • absent
Manages desired state of the resource
system_priority
-
System priority device. Remember they must match between peers.

Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL
  • The feature vpc must be enabled before this module can be used
  • If not using management vrf, vrf must be globally on the device before using in the pkl config
  • Although source IP isn’t required on the command line it is required when using this module. The PKL VRF must also be configured prior to using this module.
  • Both pkl_src and pkl_dest are needed when changing PKL VRF.
  • 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.
