New in version 2.3.

Synopsis

  • Module to manage data centers in oVirt/RHV

Aliases: ovirt_datacenters

Requirements

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

  • python >= 2.7
  • ovirt-engine-sdk-python >= 4.2.4

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
auth
required
Dictionary with values needed to create HTTP/HTTPS connection to oVirt:
username[required] - The name of the user, something like [email protected]. Default value is set by OVIRT_USERNAME environment variable.
password[required] - The password of the user. Default value is set by OVIRT_PASSWORD environment variable.
url - A string containing the API URL of the server, usually something like `https://server.example.com/ovirt-engine/api`. Default value is set by OVIRT_URL environment variable. Either url or hostname is required.
hostname - A string containing the hostname of the server, usually something like `server.example.com`. Default value is set by OVIRT_HOSTNAME environment variable. Either url or hostname is required.
token - Token to be used instead of login with username/password. Default value is set by OVIRT_TOKEN environment variable.
insecure - A boolean flag that indicates if the server TLS certificate and host name should be checked.
ca_file - A PEM file containing the trusted CA certificates. The certificate presented by the server will be verified using these CA certificates. If `ca_file` parameter is not set, system wide CA certificate store is used. Default value is set by OVIRT_CAFILE environment variable.
kerberos - A boolean flag indicating if Kerberos authentication should be used instead of the default basic authentication.
headers - Dictionary of HTTP headers to be added to each API call.
comment
Comment of the data center.
compatibility_version
Compatibility version of the data center.
description
Description of the data center.
fetch_nested
bool

(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.
force
(added in 2.5)
Default:
no
This parameter can be used only when removing a data center. If True data center will be forcibly removed, even though it contains some clusters. Default value is False, which means that only empty data center can be removed.
local
True if the data center should be local, False if should be shared.
Default value is set by engine.
mac_pool
MAC pool to be used by this datacenter.
IMPORTANT: This option is deprecated in oVirt/RHV 4.1. You should use mac_pool in ovirt_clusters module, as MAC pools are set per cluster since 4.1.
name
required
Name of the data center to manage.
nested_attributes
(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 Default:
3
Number of the seconds the module waits until another poll request on entity status is sent.
quota_mode
    Choices:
  • disabled
  • audit
  • enabled
Quota mode of the data center. One of disabled, audit or enabled
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Should the data center be present or absent.
timeout Default:
180
The amount of time in seconds the module should wait for the instance to get into desired state.
wait
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
True 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=4.2.4

Examples

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

# Create datacenter
- ovirt_datacenter:
    name: mydatacenter
    local: True
    compatibility_version: 4.0
    quota_mode: enabled

# Remove datacenter
- ovirt_datacenter:
    state: absent
    name: mydatacenter

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
data_center
dict
On success if datacenter is found.

id
str
On success if datacenter is found.
ID of the managed datacenter
