Playbooks for setting up geth nodes for main net and Ropsten
Clone the role into your geth configuration.
git clone https://github.com/mikeshultz/ansible-geth.git /etc/ansible/roles/geth
Create a role for your machine that inherits from this one to change the default options.
--- - hosts: ropsten become: yes become_method: sudo vars: geth_testnet: true geth_cache: 512 geth_port: 30304 geth_datadir: /data/ropsten geth_rpc: true geth_rpcpublic: true geth_rpcaddr: 0.0.0.0 geth_rpcport: 8080 geth_rpcapi: "eth,net,web3" geth_rpccorsdomain: "*" roles: - geth
Add machines to the role
geth for main net, or
geth_ropsten for ropsten. You can have nodes in both roles.
ropsten_etherbase_password should be specified in your vars. This is the default password for your etherbase account. This seems to be required for RPC calls. So if you plan on using RPC, even if it's a read-only node, you should do this. You can leave this var undefined and manually setup accounts yourself after deploy as well.
