# This Ad Hoc task will deploy a KVM virtual machine on existing KVM host
# If you define a bridge network, it has to exist first of course on the kvm host, defined by the ansible-role-kvm-host role
# Needed variables (per host or group inheritance):
# kvm_host: The kvm host on which to deploy the guest (string)
# kvm_guest_vcpus: number or cores to add to define the vm (string)
# kvm_guest_memory: available RAM for the guest (string, in MB)
# kvm_guest_disk_size: the qcow2 image size for the guest (string, in GB)
# kvm_guest_luks_encrypted: if we want to encrypt disk (boolean : True|False)
# kvm_guest_luks_passphrase: if we enabled it (see above) : the passphrase to crypt the disk
# Account:
# kvm_guest_root_pass: the root account password to define by default
# Network settings:
# kvm_guest_bridge: (boolean, True|False) : using an existing bridge on the kvm host
# kvm_host_bridge: the bridge name to use if above is enabled (string, like br0)
# kvm_guest_default_net: if kvm_guest_bridge is False, which other network we want to use, like 'default' (string)
# kvm_guest_arch: the architecture for the guest (string, like x86_64, aarch64, ppc64le, etc)
# kvm_guest_ip: ip address for the guest (string)
# kvm_guest_netmask: netmask for the guest (string)
# kvm_guest_gateway: gateway ip address for the guest (string)
# kvm_guest_nameserver: resolver ip address to use for the guest (string)
# Operating Systems
# rhel_version: if defined at host/group level, use RHEL and that version (string) and not centos at all
# centos_version: which centos os version to deploy (string, like 8, 8-stream, etc)
