New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • This module manage affinity groups in oVirt/RHV. It can also manage assignments of those groups to VMs.

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.7
  • ovirt-engine-sdk-python >= 4.3.0

fetch_nested
boolean
added in 2.3
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If True the module will fetch additional data from the API.
It will fetch IDs of the VMs disks, snapshots, etc. User can configure to fetch other attributes of the nested entities by specifying nested_attributes.
host_enforcing
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If yes VM cannot start on host if it does not satisfy the host_rule.
This parameter is support since oVirt/RHV 4.1 version.
host_rule
-
    Choices:
  • negative
  • positive
If positive all VMs in this group should run on the this host.
If negative no VMs in this group should run on the this host.
This parameter is support since oVirt/RHV 4.1 version.
hosts
-
List of the hosts names, which should have assigned this affinity group.
This parameter is support since oVirt/RHV 4.1 version.
name
- / required
Name of the affinity group to manage.
nested_attributes
list
added in 2.3
Specifies list of the attributes which should be fetched from the API.
This parameter apply only when fetch_nested is true.
poll_interval
integer
Default:
3
Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.
state
-
    Choices:
  • absent
  • present ←
Should the affinity group be present or absent.
timeout
integer
Default:
180
The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.
vm_enforcing
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If yes VM cannot start if it does not satisfy the vm_rule.
vm_rule
-
    Choices:
  • disabled
  • negative
  • positive
If positive all VMs in this group should run on the host defined by host_rule.
If negative no VMs in this group should run on the host defined by host_rule.
If disabled this affinity group doesn't take effect.
vms
-
List of the VMs names, which should have assigned this affinity group.
wait
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
yes if the module should wait for the entity to get into desired state.

Notes

Note

  • In order to use this module you have to install oVirt Python SDK. To ensure it’s installed with correct version you can create the following task: pip: name=ovirt-engine-sdk-python version=4.3.0

Examples

# Examples don't contain auth parameter for simplicity,
# look at ovirt_auth module to see how to reuse authentication:

- name: Create(if not exists) and assign affinity group to VMs vm1 and vm2 and host host1
  ovirt_affinity_group:
    name: mygroup
    cluster: mycluster
    vm_enforcing: true
    vm_rule: positive
    host_enforcing: true
    host_rule: positive
    vms:
      - vm1
      - vm2
    hosts:
      - host1

- name: Detach VMs from affinity group and disable VM rule
  ovirt_affinity_group:
    name: mygroup
    cluster: mycluster
    vm_enforcing: false
    vm_rule: disabled
    host_enforcing: true
    host_rule: positive
    vms: []
    hosts:
      - host1
      - host2

- name: Remove affinity group
  ovirt_affinity_group:
    state: absent
    cluster: mycluster
    name: mygroup

Return Values

Common return values are documented here, the following are the fields unique to this module:

Key Returned Description
