As documented here, Ansible is an agentless tool that manages remote machines via SSH:
Ansible is an agentless automation tool that by default manages machines over the SSH protocol.
To this end, it makes sense to have it installed by default on the Freeside Desktops.
Thankfully, there’s even a dnf package we can install:
ansible.noarch : SSH-based configuration management, deployment, and task : execution system
- Install Ansible on the Freeside Desktops
- Test the install by setting up automatic updates
- Write some documentation on how to get up-and-running with the Ansible repository that we’ve got (might also want to make a Forum post linking to the instructions in the repository if that’s where we put them)
