Synopsis

  • Module to manage logical networks in oVirt/RHV

Aliases: ovirt_networks

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.
clusters
List of dictionaries describing how the network is managed in specific cluster.
name - Cluster name.
assigned - true if the network should be assigned to cluster. Default is true.
required - true if the network must remain operational for all hosts associated with this network.
display - true if the network should marked as display network.
migration - true if the network should marked as migration network.
gluster - true if the network should marked as gluster network.
comment
Comment of the network.
data_center
Datacenter name where network reside.
description
Description of the network.
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.
label
(added in 2.5)
Name of the label to assign to the network.
mtu
Maximum transmission unit (MTU) of the network.
name
required
Name of the network 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.
state
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
Should the network 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.
vlan_tag
Specify VLAN tag.
vm_network
bool
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If True network will be marked as network for VM.
VM network carries traffic relevant to the virtual machine.
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 network
- ovirt_network:
    data_center: mydatacenter
    name: mynetwork
    vlan_tag: 1
    vm_network: true

# Remove network
- ovirt_network:
    state: absent
    name: mynetwork

Return Values

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

Key Returned Description
id
str
On success if network is found.
ID of the managed network

Sample:
7de90f31-222c-436c-a1ca-7e655bd5b60c
network
dict
On success if network is found.
Dictionary of all the network attributes. Network attributes can be found on your oVirt/RHV instance at following url: http://ovirt.github.io/ovirt-engine-api-model/master/#types/network.
