DO407 - Automation with Ansible

Overview

Duration: 4 days

Through hands-on labs, students will learn to automate system administration tasks on managed hosts with Ansible, learn how to write Ansible playbooks to standardize task execution, centrally manage playbooks and schedule recurring execution through a web interface with Ansible Tower. Students will also learn to manage encryption for Ansible with Ansible Vault, deploy Ansible Tower and use it to manage systems, and use Ansible in a DevOps environment with Vagrant.

Objectives

  • Install and troubleshoot Ansible on central nodes and managed hosts
  • Use Ansible to run ad-hoc commands and playbooks to automate tasks
  • Write effective Ansible playbooks
  • Protect encrypted data needed for tasks with Ansible Vault
  • Use Ansible Tower to more easily manage enterprise Ansible deployments
  • Work with Ansible in conjunction with Vagrant in a DevOps environment
