Deploy Multiple VMware VM with Ansible

Description

Playbook and role to deploy multiple vSphere virtual machines from a template using Ansible. For more information, you can refer to the related blog post.

Requirements

  • Python (≥ 2.6)
  • Ansible
  • PyVmomi

Configuration

The required files are:

├── ansible.cfg
├── answerfile.yml
├── deploy-kubernetes-prod.yml
├── roles
│   └── deploy-vsphere-template
│       └── tasks
│           └── main.yml
└── vms-to-deploy
  1. Edit the vms-to-deploy file to define the number of virtual machines you want to deploy, as well as their names, datastore, IP and notes.
  2. Edit the answerfile.yml file to set the correct parameter for
    • the infrastructure (where to deploy)
    • the common options for the virtual machines
  3. (optional) Edit the role.

Note: Uncomment the #resource_pool: '{{ deploy_vsphere_resourcepool }}' line in the roles/deploy-vsphere-template/tasks/main.yml file to deploy the virtual machines in a specific resource pool; don't forget to reflect your resource pool name in the answerfile.yml.

Execution

ansible-playbook -i vms-to-deploy deploy-kubernetes-prod.yml

Enjoy! :)
