Ansible

Ansible is an open-source configuration tool. You can use Ansible to communicate with network devices over SSH for centralized configuration management.

Any server installed with Ansible can act as the control machine to manage nodes. No agent is required on the managed nodes.

You can use Ansible as follows to configure network devices:

1. Create a configuration file on the control machine.

2. Trigger the control machine to establish SSH connections to the network devices.

The control machine deploys the settings to managed nodes. The managed nodes load the settings.

H3C devices can act as managed nodes to be configured by using Ansible.
