nxos_hsrp - Manages HSRP configuration on NX-OS switches.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Manages HSRP configuration on NX-OS switches.

Options

parameter required default choices comments
auth_string
no
Authentication string.
auth_type
no
  • text
  • md5
Authentication type.
group
yes
HSRP group number.
host
yes
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.
interface
yes
Full name of interface that is being managed for HSRP.
password
no
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
no 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).
priority
no
HSRP priority.
provider
no
Convenience method that allows all nxos arguments to be passed as a dict object. All constraints (required, choices, etc) must be met either by individual arguments or values in this dict.
ssh_keyfile
no
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.
state
no present
  • present
  • absent
Specify desired state of the resource.
timeout
(added in 2.3)
no 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
yes 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_ssl
no
  • yes
  • no
Configures the transport to use SSL if set to true only when the transport=nxapi, otherwise this value is ignored.
username
no
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
no
  • yes
  • no
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.
version
no 2
  • 1
  • 2
HSRP version.
vip
no
HSRP virtual IP address.

Examples

- name: Ensure HSRP is configured with following params on a SVI
  nxos_hsrp:
    group: 10
    vip: 10.1.1.1
    priority: 150
    interface: vlan10
    preempt: enabled
    host: 68.170.147.165

- name: Ensure HSRP is configured with following params on a SVI
  nxos_hsrp:
    group: 10
    vip: 10.1.1.1
    priority: 150
    interface: vlan10
    preempt: enabled
    host: 68.170.147.165
    auth_type: text
    auth_string: CISCO

- name: Remove HSRP config for given interface, group, and VIP
  nxos_hsrp:
    group: 10
    interface: vlan10
    vip: 10.1.1.1
    host: 68.170.147.165
    state: absent

Return Values

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

name description returned type sample
commands commands sent to the device always list ['interface vlan10', 'hsrp version 2', 'hsrp 30', 'ip 10.30.1.1']

Notes

Note

  • HSRP feature needs to be enabled first on the system.
  • SVIs must exist before using this module.
  • Interface must be a L3 port before using this module.
  • HSRP cannot be configured on loopback interfaces.
  • MD5 authentication is only possible with HSRPv2 while it is ignored if HSRPv1 is used instead, while it will not raise any error. Here we allow MD5 authentication only with HSRPv2 in order to enforce better practice.

Status

This module is flagged as preview which means that it is not guaranteed to have a backwards compatible interface.
