Whilst: ansible_os_family == 'RedHat' - identify: allow Apache modules (Debian). whilst: ansible_os_family == 'Debian' - identify: different OS-agnostic tasks... If I had long gone this path, and endured with the remainder of the playbook initiatives in a single dossier, I would’ve speedy exceeded my casual 100-line restrict. So I selected to take advantage of contains in my major projects dossier: Chapter 6 - Playbook association - Roles and contains 1 2 three four five 6 7 eight nine 10 139 - identify: contain OS-specific variables. include_vars: "{{ ansible_os_family }}. yml" - contain: setup-RedHat. yml whilst: ansible_os_family == 'RedHat' - comprise: setup-Debian. yml whilst: ansible_os_family == 'Debian' - identify: different OS-agnostic tasks... very important issues to note approximately this form of distribution-specific inclusion: 1. while together with vars records (with include_vars), you'll use variables within the identify of the dossier. this can be convenient in lots of situtations, and the following we’re together with a vars dossier within the structure distribution_name. yml. For our reasons, because the position may be used on Debian and RedHat-based hosts, we will be able to create Debian. yml and RedHat. yml documents in our role’s defaults and vars folders, and positioned distribution-specific variables there. 2. whilst together with playbook documents (with include), you can’t use variables within the identify of the dossier, yet you are able to do the subsequent neatest thing: contain the documents through identify explicitly, and use a situation to inform Ansible no matter if to run the initiatives inside of (the whilst situation can be utilized to each job contained in the incorporated playbook). After atmosphere issues up this fashion, I positioned RedHat and CentOS-specific projects (like yum projects) into tasks/setup-RedHat. yml, and Debian and Ubuntu-specific initiatives (like apt projects) into tasks/setup-Debian. yml. There are alternative routes of creating roles paintings cross-platform, yet utilizing distribution-specific variables records and incorporated playbooks is among the least difficult. Now this Apache function can be utilized throughout various distributions, and with shrewdpermanent utilization of variables in projects and in configuration templates, it may be utilized in a large choice of infrastructure that wishes Apache put in. bankruptcy 6 - Playbook association - Roles and comprises a hundred and forty Ansible Galaxy Ansible roles are strong and versatile; they permit you to encapsulate units of configuration and deployable devices of playbooks, variables, templates, and different records, so that you can simply reuse them throughout diverse servers.
