I am starting to look at ANSIBLE as a COVID19 learning project.

Curious if anyone has built anything with ANSIBLE for VSP/VOSS management.  Willing to share you work and experience?   Thanks

 

Full disclosure, as my titles reads I do work at Extreme. This is purely for self education.

Paul,

There is basic support for VSP/VOSS in Ansible with ‘network_cli’ plugin(connection type) and modules voss_command, voss_config, voss_facts.

 

https://github.com/extremenetworks/ansible-extreme has some details and documentation links.

 

Note: The document links in the README of the above repository is broken. I have created a PR(https://github.com/extremenetworks/ansible-extreme/pull/23) to fix them.

thanks @ukomarla 

 

I was more curious if someone has built some scripts or a playbook so I don’t have to write something from scratch.

 

 

Hi Paul,

I have created and tested some Ansible playbooks with VOSS and EXOS using GNS3.

I can share some is you are interested.

Best regards!

Ricardo
