Ansible / Test-Kitchen / Windows / Pester
This repository is an example of how you can test Ansible roles meant for Windows machines using test-kitchen.
The process will build an Ansible server as part of a test-kitchen run, apply configuration to a Windows node and then tests via Pester.

I HIGHLY recommend using chefdk and its version of Ruby, especially on Windows platforms.
Install the following:
Install required Ruby gems
Before starting we need to install some Ruby gems.
# enter the kitchen directory cd kitchen # use bundler to install the gems chef exec bundle install
With everything installed we can start using test-kitchen.
# enter the kitchen directory cd kitchen # create the vms # on windows you may get a UAC prompt when virtualbox initially configures networking kitchen create # apply the ansible role to the windows server kitchen converge # run the tests against the windows server kitchen verify # delete the vms kitchen destroy
I am using Scrutinizer CI to lint the role. See
