Getting started

Example inventory

The debops.lldpd role is included by default in the common.yml DebOps playbook; you don't need to do anything to have it executed.

If you don’t want to let debops.lldpd role install and configure the service, you can disable it with the following setting in your inventory:

lldpd__enabled: False

Example playbook

If you are using this role without DebOps, here's an example Ansible playbook that uses the debops.lldpd role:

---

- name: Manage LLDP service
  collections: [ 'debops.debops', 'debops.roles01',
                 'debops.roles02', 'debops.roles03' ]
  hosts: [ 'debops_all_hosts', 'debops_service_lldpd' ]
  become: True

  environment: '{{ inventory__environment | d({})
                   | combine(inventory__group_environment | d({}))
                   | combine(inventory__host_environment  | d({})) }}'

  roles:

    - role: lldpd
      tags: [ 'role::lldpd', 'skip::lldpd' ]

Ansible tags

You can use Ansible --tags or --skip-tags parameters to limit what tasks are performed during Ansible run. This can be used after a host was first configured to speed up playbook execution, when you are sure that most of the configuration is already in the desired state.

Available role tags:

role::lldpd
Main role tag, should be used in the playbook to execute all of the role tasks as well as role dependencies.
