ANSIBLE - modify existing network containers using nios_network module

Hi community,

Apologies if this topic has been addressed before, but I haven't been able to find a solution to my question.

I'm currently working on an Ansible playbook to modify network container information, but I'm encountering errors.

 

Here's the task:

    - name: EDIT NETWORK CONTAINERS
      infoblox.nios_modules.nios_network:
        network: '1.0.0.0/8'
        comment: 'Test'
        extattrs:
          'Country': 'Test country'
          'Platform': 'Test platform'
        provider: '{{ nios_provider }}'
      connection: local

The error message I'm getting is:

 

"msg": "The network 1.0.0.0/8 will overlap an existing network", "operation": "create_object", "type": "AdmConDataError"

 

My test network 1.0.0.0/8 contains more networks inside (1.1.1.0/24, 1.1.2.0/24, etc.). It seems like it's trying to create a new network instead of modifying the existing one. If I provide a specific network, such as 1.1.1.0/24, it works as expected.

 

If I modify the task and add the container key, like this:

 

    - name: EDIT NETWORK CONTAINERS
      infoblox.nios_modules.nios_network:
        network: '1.0.0.0/8'
        container: true
        comment: 'Test'
        extattrs:
          'Country': 'Test country'
          'Platform': 'Test platform'
        provider: '{{ nios_provider }}'
      connection: local

I get a different error:

 

"msg": "Field is not allowed for update: network", "operation": "update_object", "type": "AdmConProtoError"

It complains about `network`, which can't be removed because it's mandatory.

I'm using:

  • ansible [core 2.12.3]
  • python version = 3.9.6
  • infoblox.nios_modules 1.2.1

Any insights would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

E.
