Preseeding is a way to configure the Debian Installer non-interactively. During installation, a special text file can be downloaded over HTTP, this file can provide answers to the installer questions.

After installation, a custom shell script will be downloaded and run in the target environment to prepare host for remote use (an admin account will be created, SSH keys will be configured, optionally a Salt Minion will be installed and will start on the next boot).


This role requires at least Ansible v1.7.0. To install it, run:

ansible-galaxy install debops.preseed
