Network Automation Basics  - First Ansible Playbook



The lab objective is to use Ansible Automation to update the configuration of a Cisco CSR router. This exercise will not create an Ansible Playbook, but use an existing one that has been provided.

Sean Cavanaugh will walk you through this lab. Read more about Sean and his background: https://www.ansible.com/blog/author/sean-cavanaugh

This exercise will cover:

– examining an existing Ansible Playbook
– executing an Ansible Playbook on the command line using the ansible-navigator command
– check mode (the –check parameter)
– verbose mode (the –verbose or -v parameter)

One thought on “Network Automation Basics – First Ansible Playbook”
  1. So many tutorials out there showing how to configure devices. How about just config verification playbooks? What if you just want to verify BGP is up or show certain routes or show prefix-lists and route-maps how do you output the results?
