ANSIBLE - HOW TO CREATE A FOLDER USING FILE MODULE

 How to create a folder using File Module

I have created 3 Ubuntu servers with the names:-

Server1 - Installed Ansible

Server2 - Client Node1

Server3- Client Node2

Note:- I installed ansible on Server1.

I have created a file :- vi create-dir-oracle.yml


This will create the directory oracle on the / partition


Now we will run the playbook with the command:- ansible-playbook create-dir-oracle.yml



The above task has been completed successfully.

We can validate the folder creation by checking the / partition of server2 and server3.

Server2


Server3




Note:- To check the syntax - ansible-playbook  --syntax-check create-dir-oracle.yml


      
We can also run the ansible-playbook in an simulation mode - ansible-playbook  -C  [Name of the playbook]. This will not execute the desired task mentioned in the playbook.
