The slxos_netdev_interface type allows you to manage the configuration of a physical interface.


slxos_netdev_interface { "name":
admin => [up | down],
mtu => mtu_value,
speed => “speed_value”,
duplex => $target
target => $target


Table 1. slxos_netdev_interface properties
Property Description
name (required) Specifies the name of the physical interface.
admin (optional) Configures the interface as administratively enabled or disabled. By default, it is up.
mtu_value (optional) Configures the interface maximum transmission unit (MTU) value.
speed_value (optional) Configures the interface speed. Possible values are auto, 10m, 100m, 1g, and 10g.The default is auto.
duplex Configures duplex mode: auto, full, or half. By default, it is set to auto.
target (optional) Specifies device connection information. For example, http://admin:password@[3001::1]:830 NOTE: The target can also be specified by using a shortcut. An example is: $ip23= "http://admin:password@; you can then use $ip23 subsequently.


The following Puppet code segment configures several properties for the Ethernet interface.

class node1 {
$ip23= "http://admin:password@"
slxos_netdev_interface { “eth-1/1":
ensure => present,
admin => up,
description => "this is a storage port",
mtu => 2200,
speed => "10000",
target => $ip23

Use the show running interface command to verify the results of the code segment on the switch.

device# sh run interface ethenet 1/1
interface ethernet 1/1
speed 10000
mtu 2200
description this is a storage port
no shutdown
