I am starting to look at ANSIBLE as a COVID19 learning project.

Curious if anyone has built anything with ANSIBLE for VSP/VOSS management.  Willing to share you work and experience?   Thanks


Full disclosure, as my titles reads I do work at Extreme. This is purely for self education.

There is basic support for VSP/VOSS in Ansible with ‘network_cli’ plugin(connection type) and modules voss_command, voss_config, voss_facts. has some details and documentation links.


Note: The document links in the README of the above repository is broken. I have created a PR( to fix them.

thanks @ukomarla 


I was more curious if someone has built some scripts or a playbook so I don’t have to write something from scratch.



Hi Paul,

I have created and tested some Ansible playbooks with VOSS and EXOS using GNS3.

I can share some is you are interested.

Best regards!
