Ansible Examples Updated

I just posted more roles to github. This update includes basic ones such as an ntp-server and mysql-server. It also has a few I hope you will find especially interesting. I uploaded my CentOS ‘base’ configuration. It is fully compliant with the SCAP security guidelines (DISA RHEL 6 STIG) shown here. I uploaded my automated Xen VM creation play which I have written about before.

And, I added my kickstart role. This role creates a kickstart file for every host in your inventory and uploads it to a web server. Xen uses it to create the VM. The process is VM -> Kickstart -> Ansible. It works very well. I’ve created hundreds of VMs this way. It does require that the host be in DNS but Ansible can automate that too!
