In previous posts, I’ve written about using Ansible for network automation. Few of them can be found here, here, here, and here. In one of the posts, I had a video that was automating Cisco routers with Ansible, and was using onePK as the API to communicate to the device. In this post, I’ll be focusing on automating Nexus switches – this means each of the Ansible modules will be using NX-API to communicate with the device. This also eliminates the need for the users of these modules to know Python as they’ll be using the Ansible platform for their specific automation needs.
