vyos_interface – Manage Interface on VyOS network devices

New in version 2.4.

Synopsis

  • This module provides declarative management of Interfaces on VyOS network devices.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
aggregate
-
List of Interfaces definitions.
delay
-
Default:
10
Time in seconds to wait before checking for the operational state on remote device. This wait is applicable for operational state argument which are state with values up/down and neighbors.
description
-
Description of Interface.
duplex
-
    Choices:
  • full
  • half
  • auto ←
Interface link status.
enabled
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
Interface link status.
mtu
-
Maximum size of transmit packet.
name
- / required
Name of the Interface.
neighbors
-
added in 2.5
Check the operational state of given interface name for LLDP neighbor.
The following suboptions are available.
host
-
LLDP neighbor host for given interface name.
port
-
LLDP neighbor port to which given interface name is connected.
provider
dictionary
Deprecated
Starting with Ansible 2.5 we recommend using connection: network_cli.
For more information please see the Network Guide.

A dict object containing connection details.
host
string / 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
string
Specifies the password to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_PASSWORD will be used instead.
port
integer
Default:
22
Specifies the port to use when building the connection to the remote device.
ssh_keyfile
path
Specifies the SSH key to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is the path to the key used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_SSH_KEYFILE will be used instead.
timeout
integer
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.
username
string
Configures the username to use to authenticate the connection to the remote device. This value is used to authenticate the SSH session. If the value is not specified in the task, the value of environment variable ANSIBLE_NET_USERNAME will be used instead.
speed
-
Interface link speed.
state
-
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
  • up
  • down
State of the Interface configuration, up means present and operationally up and down means present and operationally down

Notes

Note

  • Tested against VYOS 1.1.7
  • For more information on using Ansible to manage network devices see the Ansible Network Guide
