Ansible Provisioner for NetflixOSS Aminator
Warning: Refactoring of Aminator is going on right now, so this will work eventually, but probably doesn't just yet.
This Aminator plugin allows you to provision an AMI using an Ansible playbook.
Some example Ansible playbooks can be found in the NetflixOSS-Ansible playbooks repository.
$ sudo aminate -e ec2_ansible_linux -B ami-6637760f asgard-ubuntu.yml
Sometimes it is useful to pass extra variables to your Ansible playbook. This can be done with the --extra-vars command line parameter. Example:
$ aminate -e ec2_ansible_linux -B ami-fndat10n --extra-vars "local_war=$HOME/asgard.war" asgard-ubuntu.yml
First, install Aminator. Then install Ansible. Finally, to install the Ansible provisioner for Aminator:
$ sudo aminator-plugin install ansible
Then you will need to make add an environment that uses the Ansible provisioner to your /etc/aminator/environments.yml file. For example:
ec2_ansible_linux: cloud: ec2 distro: debian provisioner: ansible volume: linux blockdevice: linux finalizer: tagging_ebs
Then you can use Aminator with Ansible:
$ sudo aminate -e ec2_ansible_linux -B ami-2cac311c asgard-ubuntu.yml
