Target Audience

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

Technical Requirements
  • 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).

Training program

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.

You will write and run Windows automation tasks using Red Hat Ansible Automation in a Windows environment. You will perform common administrative tasks, write Ansible projects from your Windows workstation, store the history of all changes in a Git-based version control system, and run and troubleshoot those tasks from the web interface of Red Hat Ansible Tower.
