ansible-playground  Usage

Welcome to the Demo of Configuration Management Automation

This is a simple utility repository to bootstrap Ansible playground. It uses VirtualBox and Vagrant to provision:

1 VM to be Master Orchestrator (available at n VMs (2 by default) to be DevOps Servers (available at Installation

Install the latest version of VirtualBox and VirtualBox extension Install Vagrant Clone this repository: $ git clone $ cd ansible-playground Start VMs (it will create 3 VMs and provision Ansible). There will also be a hosts file which will be created at /etc/ansible/hosts) which defines a new group named dev which contains the DevOps servers. Create and provision all VM's: $ vagrant up && vagrant provision Once the VM's are up and running, install tmuxinator and run mux. This will connect to the provisioned 3 Vagrant VM's.

In order for the Master Orchestrator to Communicate with the DevOps Servers, generate a new SSH key in the master shell using ssh-keygen and copy the new key to the DevOps machines:

vagrant@master:~$ ssh-keygen ... vagrant@master:~$ ssh-copy-id vagrant@ ... vagrant@master:~$ ssh-copy-id vagrant@ ... The password for the vagrant user on all machines is vagrant.


vagrant@master:~$ ansible dev -a "uptime" | success | rc=0 >> 07:49:11 up 1:22, 2 users, load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05 | success | rc=0 >> 07:49:11 up 1:19, 2 users, load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05
