Episode 7: Provisioning Linux Machines With Ansible
It's time to provision our Request Metrics server. There is some common configuration that applies to all Linux servers. We want this base configuration regardless of what that specific server is doing. This a great use case for an Ansible role.
Our "linux-common" role includes these among other things:
- Send Email Notification on Login Using Mailgun
- Sync Server Time With NTP
- Disable password based SSH Authentication
- Set hostname to to match the inventory file
