Explore the role and key phases of Ansible Automation for DevOps, including key components and configuration parameters and features of Ansible Playbook. This 12-video course shows learners how to use Ansible components to set up Ansible on-premises, in a sandbox, and in the cloud, plus how to create inventory files to enable communication with Ansible Server. Key concepts covered include: the role of Ansible in implementation of DevOps principles and key phases of Ansible automation; how to install Control Machine and Managed Nodes to set up Ansible; and how to configure Ansible Sandbox using virtualization on local machines. Next, learn to create inventory files to enable communication with Ansible Server; steps involved in setting up Ansible and powering graphical user interface (GUI) capability with AWX; and features of Ansible playbooks and important tags used in YAML to create playbooks for configuration management. Finally, learn to run Ansible playbooks on AWX server; essential configuration parameters of Ansible; and installing Control Machine and Managed Node to set up Ansible and run Ansible Playbook on Ansible AWX server.
