Automation with Ansible (DO407) is designed for Linux system administrators and developers who need to automate provisioning, configuration, application deployment, and orchestration. You will learn how to install and configure Ansible on a management workstation and prepare managed hosts for automation.
This course is based on Red Hat® Ansible Engine 2.7 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3.
Incorporating IT automation is key to managing large numbers of systems and applications efficiently and consistently at scale. In this course, you will write Ansible playbooks to automate tasks, and you will run them to ensure servers are correctly deployed and configured. You will also explore examples of how to approach the automation of common Linux system administration tasks.
The material covered in this curriculum is now included within our newly released Red Hat System Administration III: Linux Automation with Ansible (RH294)course, which covers how to use Red Hat Ansible Automation to automate across different functions. If you are interested in learning how to scale infrastructure efficiently, begin your journey with Linux automation today.
The Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation exam (EX407) tests your ability to use Ansible to automate the configuration of systems and applications.
By passing this exam, you become a Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ansible Automation, which also count towards becoming a Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA).
This exam is based on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.5 and Ansible 2.7.
The material covered in this exam is now included within the curriculum of the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam (EX294). This new exam tests your ability to use Red Hat Ansible Automation to automate across different functions and scale infrastructure efficiently.
