Getting started

Example inventory

To manage kernel modules on a host, you need to add it to the [debops_service_kmod] Ansible inventory group:

[debops_service_kmod]
hostname

Example playbook

If you are using this role without DebOps, here's an example Ansible playbook that uses the debops.kmod role:

---

- name: Manage kernel modules
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_kmod' ]
  become: True

  environment: '{{ inventory__environment | d({})
                   | combine(inventory__group_environment | d({}))
                   | combine(inventory__host_environment  | d({})) }}'

  roles:

    - role: debops.python
      tags: [ 'role::python', 'skip::python', 'role::kmod' ]
      python__dependent_packages3:
        - '{{ kmod__python__dependent_packages3 }}'
      python__dependent_packages2:
        - '{{ kmod__python__dependent_packages2 }}'

    - role: debops.kmod
      tags: [ 'role::kmod', 'skip::kmod' ]

Ansible tags

You can use Ansible --tags or --skip-tags parameters to limit what tasks are performed during Ansible run. This can be used after a host was first configured to speed up playbook execution, when you are sure that most of the configuration is already in the desired state.

Available role tags:

role::kmod
Main role tag, should be used in the playbook to execute all of the role tasks as well as role dependencies.
