  1. I tried reading documentation and watching other videos and it wasn't easy and i got bored and bummed out, but you sir explained it simply and now I'm excited about Ansible. Thank you. 🙏❤️

  2. The automation I know is cronjob, cronjob @reboot, pm2, things like that, but have to watch this too see what ansible is.

  3. you need to learn Ansible RIGHT NOW!! … bullshit i thought, but after watching this tutorial I use ansible everyday. Thank you Chuck!

  4. I'm a little late to the game here, but I had a ton of issues trying to get this working.

    From CentOS not being supported anymore, so the repos are all busted, to Ansible trying to use python2 instead of python3 to run commands.

    I finally got it working, so I wanted to drop some knowledge nuggets for other folks that might find this in 2022 and beyond.

    To use something RHEL based but with working repos, I went with Scientific Linux 7.

    The only workaround I could find with the python3 issue was to add the following to the linux group after the nodes:


    my.server.node.fqdn ansible_python_interpreter=/usr/bin/python3

    hope this helps anyone who finds it!

  5. You had me at "routers and switches". I don't work with that stuff anymore but never thought I could use Ansible for managing that.

  6. I started watching your channel to make my gf think I’m really smart but ended up actually learning a lot from you 😁

  7. Probably use ansible to install a zabbix and wazuh agent, setup PSK encryption for the connection, add zerotier and update /etc/hosts files. Be nice to have that to replicate across my lab.

  9. I have to say this is the most helpful video I’ve seen in a while. I’m a Student Sys Admin at my college and I was tasked to make an ansible server for our student GNS3 severs in order to automate lab creation. Needless to say I was very lost and found your video shortly after… I have seen the light!!! Keep doing what you’re doing, I’ve always loved your content!

  10. Who here has heard YAML = Yet Another Mark-up Language?!

    First time I heard YAML Ain't Mark-up Language

  11. Why is this better than writting my own bash script that ssh's into each server (within a loop) and executes the commands that I want?

  12. I'm watching this at 2am in the morning the robot at the start is fuckign creepy dude lol

  13. Yo, after press esc to exit insert mode you can hold shift and press 'z' twice, this is do same as ':wq'

  14. learning this this week through full sail university. this video was much more informative than the lecture was

  15. this was one of the easiest way to understand ansible. thanks Chuck. great content as always 🙂
