In Automating with Ansible LiveLessons we will be building on the Ansible Fundamentals LiveLessons foundation. To make sure that you don't miss anything essential, this course starts with an Ansible Basics getting started lab, which will involve setting up an environment where all of the Ansible basic skills will be reviewed. We will then move on to using DevOps. You will learn how Vagrant can be used to set up an environment with virtual machines, and set up an IT Infrastructure with Ansible that you can follow along through the author demonstrations. We will also discuss how to manage Windows, network equipment, as well as cloud infrastructure with Ansible.
Next, we'll have a look at some of the more advanced Ansible features, such as working with roles, task control, and using Ansible Vault. Then we will discuss Ansible optimization and troubleshooting with walk-through examples. In the last lesson, we'll learn how to work with Ansible Tower, which helps you to efficiently use Ansible in a datacenter environment.
This course compliments the Ansible Fundamentals LiveLessons course and can also be used as a secondary resource to get you started studying for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Ansible Automation (exam 407).
