Getting started

Example inventory

To configure volume snapshots on host given in debops_service_snapshot_snapper Ansible inventory group:


Example playbook

Here's an example playbook that uses the debops-contrib.snapshot_snapper role:


- name: Configure volume snapshots with snapper
  hosts: [ 'debops_service_snapshot_snapper' ]
  become: True

  environment: '{{ inventory__environment | d({})
                   | combine(inventory__group_environment | d({}))
                   | combine(inventory__host_environment  | d({})) }}'


    - role: debops-contrib.snapshot_snapper
      tags: [ 'role::snapshot_snapper' ]

The playbooks is shipped with this role under ./docs/playbooks/snapshot_snapper.yml from which you can symlink it to your playbook directory. In case you use multiple DebOps Contrib roles, consider using the DebOps Contrib playbooks.

Ansible tags

You can use Ansible --tags or --skip-tags parameters to limit what tasks are performed during Ansible run. This can be used after a host was first configured to speed up playbook execution, when you are sure that most of the configuration is already in the desired state.

Available role tags:

Main role tag, should be used in the playbook to execute all of the role tasks as well as role dependencies.
Execute tasks related to automatic reinitialization of volume snapshots.
