Description Louis Imershein 2018-05-11 19:09:36 UTC
Description of problem:

Red Hat customers at Red Hat Summit 2018 requested that we include a link to the VDO ansible module documentation from our page.  I checked and I didn't see any Red Hat specific docs for ansible engine so we might need to inquire where we should be linking, but the request seems reasonable.  Most customers don't want to configure VDO by hand on each machine.

The documentation for the Ansible VDO module for upstream Ansible (as of version 2.5) is here:


Comment 5 Bryan Gurney 2018-07-11 19:49:40 UTC
Hi Marek,

Can we add the URL for the VDO Ansible module to the RHEL 7 Storage Administration Guide, in Part III, "Data Deduplication and Compression with VDO"?

Comment 6 Marek Suchánek 2018-08-14 14:56:14 UTC
Hi Bryan,

Sorry for the delay. I've added a short section titled "Automating VDO with Ansible" at the end of "Administering VDO":

I'll try to find a better place for the reference in the restructured RHEL 8 documentation. Until then, does this work for you?

Comment 7 Marek Suchánek 2018-08-31 14:35:51 UTC
I'm considering the issue resolved; closing this bug as CURRENTRELEASE.
