4. Configure and Initialize

omni comes with a script, readyToLogin which finds the login information for nodes in your slice.

As of omni version 2.8, it has an --ansible-inventory flag which generates the Ansible inventory, which is a flat file which tells ansible the name and login information for your nodes.

On your local machine:

readyToLogin MYSLICE --useSliceAggregates --ansible-inventory -o
cat inventory
ansible all  -m ping -i inventory

Here is example output of running these commands:

$ readyToLogin ansible --useSliceAggregates --ansible-inventory -o
Host info saved in inventory file: /Users/jdoe/projects/GENI/hellogeni/inventory

$ cat inventory
client  ansible_ssh_port=33850

$ ansible all  -m ping -i inventory
client | success >> {
    "changed": false,
    "ping": "pong"

server | success >> {
    "changed": false,
    "ping": "pong"

5. Execute Experiment

Tip The following are some example Ansible commands.

On your local machine:

ansible -i inventory all -s -m apt -a "name=apache2 update_cache=yes"
ansible -i inventory server -s  -a "/usr/sbin/a2enmod status"
ansible -i inventory server -s -m file -a "path=/var/www/html state=absent"
ansible -i inventory server -s  -m synchronize -a "src=website/index.html dest=/var/www"
ansible -i inventory server -s  -m lineinfile -a "line='ExtendedStatus On' dest=/etc/apache2/conf.d/extendedstatus create=yes state=present"
ansible -i inventory server -s  -m service -a "name=apache2 state=restarted"
