Ansible default structure
  • ansible.cfg
  • hosts
  • roles
ls /etc/ansible

ansible.cfg :  Main Configuration File
vi /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
Check following points  and  uncomment if you want to change default settings

#inventory = /etc/ansible/hosts

#library = /usr/share/my_modules/

#module_utils = /usr/share/my_module_utils/

#remote_tmp = ~/.ansible/tmp

#local_tmp = ~/.ansible/tmp

#plugin_filters_cfg = /etc/ansible/plugin_filters.yml

#forks = 5

#poll_interval = 15

#sudo_user = root

#ask_sudo_pass = True

#ask_pass = True

#transport = smart

#remote_port = 22

#module_lang = C

#module_set_locale = False

# uncomment this to disable SSH key host checking

host_key_checking = False

# additional paths to search for roles in, colon separated

#roles_path = /etc/ansible/roles

# SSH timeout

#timeout = 10

# default user to use for playbooks if user is not specified

# (/usr/bin/ansible will use current user as default)

#remote_user = root

# logging is off by default unless this path is defined

# if so defined, consider logrotate

#log_path = /var/log/ansible.log

# if set, always use this private key file for authentication, same as

# if passing --private-key to ansible or ansible-playbook

#private_key_file = /path/to/file

# If set, configures the path to the Vault password file as an alternative to

# specifying --vault-password-file on the command line.

#vault_password_file = /path/to/vault_password_file

#system_warnings = True

#deprecation_warnings = True


ansible roles are the collections of variables, tasks, files, templates, and modules. each role has a directory tree in itself and locate in /roles directory.
ansible-galaxy -h

ansible-galaxy [delete|import|info|init|install|list|login|remove|search|setup] [--help] [options]

To Create a roles directory
cd /etc/ansible/rolesansible-galaxy init linuxtopic
ls linuxtopic


This is Inventory file where we add entry of hosts matching.
vi /etc/hosts
# localhost

Note: here "[localhost]" hosts group name and "” is hosts of group

To verify localhost connectivity using ping module 
ansible localhost -m ping
Here “ansible” is command “localhost” is groupname ( we can also use separate ip of host like ) “-m ping” -m module option and “ping” is module name
