      Thanks for the video! So, it's basically an open source version of SCCM with task sequences, supporting grouping of servers

      Could Ansible be implemented in Industrial scale and Mid scale Manufacturing, &/ or CnC Machines?

      Once again, very helpful video, though I had difficulty following the teaching initially. Had to look up a more basic definition of Ansible and its use cases, before finally understanding. It all made sense in the end. Thank you.

      Its funny how Network engineers are using Ansible and Software Developers are using Terraform…..LOL
      By the way Cisco requires Ansible in its test to become CCNA certified. – But DevOps & other Software Engineers certification requires Terraform.
      Also ( 6:20 ) Terraform operate's using an agentless architecture. — This person in this video claiming that Anisible is the only one that is agentless is false…

      1. How do you make sure you have the correct inventory on all machines used to run Ansible?
      2. How do you make sure you have the last version of the playbook?
      3. How do you apply one version of the playbook to one group of hosts and another version to another group of hosts?

      We just need Python installed on the target VMS we want to SSH. But good introduction. Ansible is written in PYTHON.
