Welcome! This is the Fedora Infrastructure Ansible Pagure project.
Pull requests and forks can be made against this repository hosted at https://pagure.io/fedora-infra/ansible
This repository is also mirrored for production runs to https://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/infra/ansible/ but this is the working repository where changes are made.
If you would like to help out with Fedora Infrastructure, see:
files - files and templates for use in playbooks/tasks - subdirs for specific tasks/dirs highly recommended inventory - where the inventory and additional vars is stored - All files in this directory in ini format - added together for total inventory group_vars: - per group variables set here in a file per group host_vars: - per host variables set here in a file per host library - library of custom local ansible modules playbooks - collections of plays we want to run on systems groups: groups of hosts configured from one playbook. hosts: playbooks for single hosts. manual: playbooks that are only run manually by an admin as needed. tasks - snippets of tasks that should be included in plays roles - specific roles to be use in playbooks. Each role has it's own files/templates/vars filter_plugins - Jinja filters main.yml - This is the main playbook, consisting of all current group and host playbooks. Note that the daily cron doesn't run this, it runs even over playbooks that are not yet included in main. This playbook is usefull for making changes over multiple groups/hosts usually with -t (tag).
The public path on batcave01 (our control host) for everything is
The private path on batcave01 (our control host) (which is sysadmin-main accessible only)
In general to run any ansible playbook you will want to run:
sudo -i ansible-playbook /path/to/playbook.yml
(On batcave01, our control host)
Every night a cron job runs over all playbooks under
ansible --check --diff. A report from this is sent to sysadmin-logs.
In the ideal state this report would be empty.
All playbooks should be idempotent. Ie, if run once they should bring the machine(s) to the desired state, and if run again N times after that they should make 0 changes (because the machine(s) are in the desired state). Please make sure your playbooks are idempotent.
When a playbook or change is checked into ansible you should assume that it could be run at ANY TIME. Always make sure the checked in state is the desired state. Always test changes when they land so they don't surprise you later.
