About this course:

Learn how to automate administration on Windows Server to enable your DevOps workflow

Microsoft Windows Automation with Red Hat Ansible (DO417) is designed for Windows Server professionals without previous Ansible® experience. You will use Ansible to write automation playbooks for Microsoft Windows systems to perform common system administration tasks reproducibly at scale. You will also learn to use Red Hat® Ansible Tower to securely manage and run your Ansible playbooks from a central web-based user interface.

This course is based on Red Hat Ansible Engine 2.8, Red Hat Ansible Tower 3.5, and Windows Server 2016 and 2019.

Course Objective:

  • Configure Microsoft Windows systems to be managed with Ansible.
  • Create and manage inventories of managed hosts and provide credentials to manage them to Red Hat Ansible Tower.
  • Write Ansible playbooks to consistently automate multiple tasks and apply them to managed hosts.
  • Run individual ad hoc automation tasks and complex playbooks from Red Hat Ansible Tower.
  • Create survey forms in Red Hat Ansible Tower to simplify playbook operation.
  • Parameterize playbooks using variables and facts.
  • Write and reuse existing Ansible roles to simplify playbook creation and reuse code.
  • Leverage existing PowerShell DSC code to extend the power of Ansible automation.
  • Automate common Windows Server system administration tasks using Ansible.

Audience:

  • Windows Server administrators interested in automating management tasks and in using automation tools to implement their DevOps workflow.

Prerequisite:

  • You are expected to have experience as Windows Server administrators, but no previous experience with Red Hat Ansible Automation or Linux® is required.

Technical considerations

  • This class will require internet access.
  • You will be expected to "bring your own device" (BYOD).
  • Your device must be installed with a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
    • If you are running Microsoft Windows, you should have Microsoft Remote Desktop installed.
    • If you are running macOS, you will need to install Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac (by Microsoft) from the App Store.
    • If you are running Linux, you may install Remmina from their distribution (if available) or following instructions at https://remmina.org (if not). If they prefer, they may instead install the FreeRDP clients from their Linux distribution (in the freerdp package in Red Hat Enterprise Linux).
