Ansible File Module Kodekloud


Question: The Nautilus DevOps team is working to test several Ansible modules on servers in Stratos DC. Recently they wanted to test the file creation on remote hosts using Ansible. Find below more details about the task:

a. Create an inventory file ~/playbook/inventory on jump host and add all app servers in it.

b. Create a playbook ~/playbook/playbook.yml to create a blank file /opt/web.txt on all app servers.

c. The /opt/web.txt file permission must be 0655.

d. The user/group owner of file /opt/web.txt must be tony on app server 1, steve on app server 2 and banner on app server 3.

Note: Validation will try to run the playbook using command ansible-playbook -i inventory playbook.yml, so please make sure the playbook works this way without passing any extra arguments.


Go to playbook folder and Create a inventory file

cd playbook

vi inventory

stapp01 ansible_user=tony [email protected]
stapp02 ansible_user=steve [email protected]
stapp03 ansible_user=banner ansible_ssh_pass=BigGr33n

Then, create a playbook according to question

vi playbook

- hosts: all
  become: yes
  - name: Create blank file
      path: /opt/web.txt
      state: touch
      owner: "{{ ansible_user }}"
      group: "{{ ansible_user }}"
      mode: "0655" 

Finally apply the playbook

ansible-playbook -i inventory playbook.yml
