This week covers AWX, Ansible’s solution for scaling out deployments. Some Graylog feature previews and a run through of building an NTP client!
The holidays are upon us and time is short. Enjoy some interesting links from this past week!
I’ve been building a lot of virtual machines and containers on proxmox lately. To save some time I wrote an ansible role that provisions containers for me, I just have to update some variables.
There’s a lot of potential apps to host in a homelab. I’ve investigated where to start, also info on getting Ceph and Proxmox up and running at home.
Lots of work on Ceph and Proxmox, advice for working on projects, checking out Shodan and some new music recommendation for homelab work!
This week covers a lot of Ansible, Kubernetes and theres some interesting DevOps article reads. Also time to start testing RHEL 8!
Using Ansible “when” statements allows you to set parameters for when a task should play out. I’ve put together some examples.
I sweat, this is the week I’ll do a write up about my lab.. Lots of interesting articles this week! I’ve been reading a lot more about security this week.
I didn’t get a ton of work done int he lab this week, but I did write about using subelements with Ansible. Also spent some time working with Graylog and Hashcorp Vault earlier in the week. I should be able to put a Graylog Ansible role up in the near future. Vault looks like it’s a little bit of a bigger project, but the structure is really interesting.
While working on my Ansible Galaxy users role I came across a situation where I needed to loop through a list inside a dictionary inside a list. For this specific case I had a list of users, and each user could have multiple authorized sshkeys stored in a “pubkeys” value.
