Learn the Ansible automation technology with some real-life examples.
Every successful IT department needs automation for bare metal servers, virtual machines, could, containers, and edge computing. Automate your IT journey with Ansible automation technology.
I’m going to teach you, for example, by example, how to manage users and groups in Linux and macOS operation systems are the most common helpful System Administrator tasks.
Each of the 30+ lessons summarizes a specific scenario about user and groups management: creating a user, creating a new pair of a suitable SSH key and a home directory, changing a password and specifying the encryption cipher, removing the home directory and the mailbox, or assigning a special `no login` shell for temporarily disabled users. Another frequent user scenario is when you only need to temporarily disable and enable a user. Another useful administrator tool is group management to assign permission to resources to a bunch of users.
You could easily customize the example code with your username and use it in your everyday journey without additional effort. Some Ansible codes are usable in all the Linux distribution systems and macOS, battle-tested for RedHat-like and Debian-like systems.
