Beginning with napalm
The very basic steps needed for a user to get the module up and running. This can include setup steps, if necessary, or it can be an example of the most basic use of the module.
This module contains 4 tasks:
- install_dependencies - this will install the system depdendencies
- call - make function calls to NAPALM
- configure - configure network devices using a supplied config file
- validate - validate network device configuration using a validation file
Do not run the task on the networking device itself. These tasks are meant to be run on a jump host. These tasks use virtualenv to create an isolated python environment. It will also put some files in the /tmp folder.
An example plan using all the tasks is included.
