Hands-On: Information Gathering

Get some hands-on experience with using Ansible playbooks on a simple emulated network.

We'll cover the following

In the previous lessons, we have seen a network that is similar to what we would encounter in real life. However, emulating such a network in a virtual environment is not feasible.

In this lesson, we will gain some hands-on experience working with Ansible using a simplified network. The difference is simply a matter of scaling and device type.

The network has three Linux-based devices connected to it, and we will use Ansible to retrieve facts about these devices.

The devices are connected over the docker network as shown in the illustration below.
