Getting started

Default configuration

The sysfs configuration will not be applied by default in a container environment (LXC, OpenVZ), since these environments usually have the /sys filesystem mounted read-only. You can control this using the sysfs__enabled variable.

Example inventory

To configure the /sys kernel filesystem on a host by the debops.sysfs role, that host needs to be added to the [debops_service_sysfs] Ansible inventory group:


Example playbook

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


- name: Configure sysfs options
  collections: [ 'debops.debops', 'debops.roles01',
                 'debops.roles02', 'debops.roles03' ]
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_sysfs' ]
  become: True

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


    - name: Prepare sysfs environment
        name: 'sysfs'
        tasks_from: 'main_env'
      tags: [ 'role::sysfs', 'role::secret' ]


    - role: secret
      tags: [ 'role::secret', 'role::sysfs' ]
        - '{{ sysfs__secret__directories | d([]) }}'

    - role: sysfs
      tags: [ 'role::sysfs', 'skip::sysfs' ]
