  • Overview

    Learn how to automate administration on Windows Server to enable your DevOps workflow

    Microsoft Windows Automation with Red Hat Ansible (DO417) is designed for Windows Server professionals without previous Ansible® experience. You will use Ansible to write automation playbooks for Microsoft Windows systems to perform common system administration tasks reproducibly at scale. You will also learn to use Red Hat® Ansible Tower to securely manage and run your Ansible playbooks from a central web-based user interface.

    This course is based on Red Hat Ansible Engine 2.8, Red Hat Ansible Tower 3.5, and Windows Server 2016 and 2019.

  • Who Should Take This Course

    Audience

    Windows Server administrators interested in automating management tasks and in using automation tools to implement their DevOps workflow.

    Prerequisites

    You are expected to have experience as Windows Server administrators, but no previous experience with Red Hat Ansible Automation or Linux® is required.

    Technical Considerations

    • This class will require internet access.
    • You will be expected to “bring your own device” (BYOD).
    • Your device must be installed with a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
      • If you are running Microsoft Windows, you should have Microsoft Remote Desktop installed.
      • If you are running macOS, you will need to install Microsoft Remote Desktop for Mac (by Microsoft) from the App Store.
      • If you are running Linux, you may install Remmina from their distribution (if available) or following instructions at https://remmina.org (if not).  If they prefer, they may instead install the FreeRDP clients from their Linux distribution (in the freerdp package in Red Hat Enterprise Linux).
