What is Ansible?

Ansible is a Python based automation tool put together by Red Hat. The project can be found here.

Where is it being used?

The source code for the ansible playbooks can be found here.

3D Printers

Currently, Ansible is being used at AHA to update the Raspberry Pi machines for the 3D printers.

How do I use the scripts?

SSH Keys

A copy of your SSH public key needs to be placed in /home/pi/.ssh/authorized_keys

Running the script

To run the script do the following:

1) Download the yaml and ini files

2) Run ansible-playbook -i servers.ini 3dprinter-update.yaml -b --ask-become-pass, making sure the file path to servers.ini and 3dprinter-update.yaml files are correct.

3) Wait. You should get a command prompt when finished.
