Unable to upload image on AOS switch(2930M) with Ansible

  • 1.  Unable to upload image on AOS switch(2930M) with Ansible

    Posted Jan 24, 2022 09:44 AM
    Dear All

    I'm using a simple playbook for uploading firmware image to 2930M using cli.

    ---
    - hosts: all
    collections:
    - arubanetworks.aos_switch
    vars:
    ansible_connection: network_cli
    tasks:
    - name: image upload
    arubaoss_command:
    commands: ["copy tftp flash 10.0.0.100 WC_16_10_0019.swi secondary"]
    register: result
    - debug: var=result

    The playbook runs without "failed" but the image upload is not working at all. 
    If I run the command on the switch itself, "copy tftp flash 10.0.0.100 WC_16_10_0019.swi secondary" is working completely fine from the switch and there is no firewall blocking the traffic between the switch and TFTP on my laptop.
    I've attached the debug file.
    Does anybody know what I miss or did wrongly?

    it look a issue with paramiko to connect to the switch...

    if you try to connect to the switch with paramiko it is working ?

    Dear Alagotte

    Thank you for your reply.
    I'm a beginner who just dived into the automation world not familiar with any other automation tool.
    I just want to try Ansible first because it's much simpler than python.
    I have tried to make a paramiko test run as attached.
    I'm not sure this is what you think.
    This python script is running without error but no actual config change is seen on the switch.
    Could you help me out here?


    =================================================================
    import paramiko
    import time

    ip_address = "10.0.0.1"
    username = "manager"
    password = "manager"

    ssh_client = paramiko.SSHClient()
    ssh_client.set_missing_host_key_policy(paramiko.AutoAddPolicy())
    ssh_client.connect(hostname=ip_address,username=username,password=password)

    remote_connection = ssh_client.invoke_shell()
    remote_connection.send("configure terminal\n")
    remote_connection.send("int loop 1\n")
    remote_connection.send("ip address 2.2.2.2\n")
    remote_connection.send("end\n")

    time.sleep(1)
    output = remote_connection.recv(65535)

    ssh_client.close
