Designed for system administrators who are intending to use Ansible for automation, configuration, and management. Learn how to install and configure Ansible, create and run playbooks to configure systems, and learn to manage inventories.

Automation and orchestration is becoming more common in the enterprise as departments continue to do "more with less." Ansible is an open-source automation tool for managing your configuration, provisioning, and change management. We start with orchestration and change management fundamentals then move to how Ansible works. After building our test environment, we then move to more practical examples and features that Ansible provides. By the end of the course, you will be able to run ad-hoc commands across all your systems, write playbooks, and create roles using the hundreds of modules that come with Ansible. While this course was recorded with Ansible v1.5, all commands should work up to 1.9, though some were deprecated in 1.8

This course is designed for 5 days but with the reduction of some of Lab/Excercise, can be acoomdated in 3 days.
