One of the keys to success with Ansible is being able to run `ad-hoc` commands. The value of `ad-hoc` commands is underscored by the fact that it is an objective of the *Red Hat Certified Ansible Specialist* exam. This exercise guides students through crafting many `ad-hoc` commands which will not only build experience with the concept but also broaden the students’ exposure to various Ansible command modules.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create the User Accounts Noted in `/home/ansible/userlist.txt`
ansible dbsystems -b -m user -a "name=consultant"
ansible dbsystems -b -m user -a "name=supervisor"
- Place Key Files in the Correct Location, `/home/$USER/.ssh/authorized_keys`, on Hosts in `dbsystems`
ansible dbsystems -b -m file -a "path=/home/consultant/.ssh state=directory owner=consultant group=consultant mode=0755"
ansible dbsystems -b -m copy -a "src=/home/ansible/keys/consultant/authorized_keys dest=/home/consultant/.ssh/authorized_keys mode=0600 owner=consultant group=consultant"
ansible dbsystems -b -m file -a "path=/home/supervisor/.ssh state=directory owner=supervisor group=supervisor mode=0755"
ansible dbsystems -b -m copy -a "src=/home/ansible/keys/supervisor/authorized_keys dest=/home/supervisor/.ssh/authorized_keys mode=0600 owner=supervisor group=supervisor"
- Ensure `auditd` Is Enabled and Running on All Hosts
ansible all -b -m service -a "name=auditd state=started enabled=yes"
