Set Up Ansible Control Node

Contributors iamjoemccormick

Set up an Ansible control node to deploy and manage the file system.


An Ansible control node is a physical or virtual Linux machine used to manage the cluster. It must meet the following requirements:

  • Meet the requirements for the BeeGFS HA role including the installed versions of Ansible, Python, and any additional Python packages.

  • Meet the official Ansible control node requirements including operating system versions.

  • Have SSH and HTTPS access to all file and block nodes.

Detailed installation steps can be found here.
