  • Telegraf-InfluxDB-Grafana template - changed Ubuntu version from 14.04 LTS to 18.04 to make sure that Ansible (which is installed by script during deployment) can get properly installed. 14.04 uses Python 2.7 as default one, which makes Ansible throw deprecated error, as it no longer supports this Python version. By changing Ubuntu version to 18.4 template deploys properly.
Ubuntu version changed from 14.04 to 18.04 LTS in
Telegraf-InfluxDB-Grafana template

Change required to be able to properly deploy template, as current
Ansible version does not allow to run under Python 2.7, which is default
in Ubuntu 14.04.

18.04 uses supported Python3 version, which allows template (and scripts
that runs afterwards) to run properly.
