Starting up - configuring the structure

We will call this server the Ansible server for Ubuntu you can use these commands:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ansible/ansible
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ansible

Than we want to configure the hosts file so it will know the other servers its working with by name:


sudo nano /etc/hosts

and add to its end:


192.168.56.10 ubuntu-1
192.168.56.20 ubuntu-2

Save and exit. Check by pinging the server names:


ping ubuntu-1
ping ubuntu-2

Try to ssh both of them to verify connectivity.


ssh ubuntu-1
ssh ubuntu-2
