Getting started

This role is part of the DebOps libvirtd configuration

The debops.libvirtd_qemu role manages the libvirtd QEMU-related configuration. It can be used as standalone, however the role is intentionally very limited and relies on the debops.libvirtd to do most of the work related to package installation and environment setup. You are strongly advised to use the roles and their playbooks together.

Example inventory

The role is used by the debops.libvirtd playbook and will be enabled automatically on hosts that are included in the [debops_service_libvirtd] Ansible inventory group.

This role can be enabled on virtualization hosts separately. You can do this by adding a host to the [debops_service_libvirtd_qemu] group:


Example playbook

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


- name: Install and manage libvirtd QEMU configuration
  collections: [ 'debops.debops', 'debops.roles01',
                 'debops.roles02', 'debops.roles03' ]
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_libvirtd_qemu' ]
  become: True

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


    - role: ferm
      tags: [ 'role::ferm', 'skip::ferm' ]
        - '{{ libvirtd_qemu__ferm__dependent_rules }}'

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

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:

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