Why does the playbook fail?
Make sure that you are on ansible version >=2.1. You can check your ansible version by typing:
What is the username and password of the galaxy admin account ?
Username and password of the galaxy account are controlled by the variables
admin (Defaults are defined in group_vars/all). This should be changed in the group or host variables for the host you are working on.
If you have a host in the
mygroup group, you can edit group_vars/my_group and set
galaxy_admin: firstname.lastname@example.org galaxy_admin_pw: new_password
As with each change, run the playbook again.
How can I set up GalaxyKickStart behind a proxy?
Many commandline utilities can be configured to use a proxy by setting the
https_proxy environment variables. Tasks launched by ansible
will only see these environment variables if ansible sets these variables for
the task. We have included a global
proxy_env variable in the galaxy.yml playbook.
You can set the content of this variable in your inventory or group variables
(See Customizing the playbook for details on how to define variable).
To use the proxy at http://proxy.bos.example.com:8080 define the variable
proxy_env like so:
proxy_env: http_proxy: http://proxy.bos.example.com:8080 https_proxy: http://proxy.bos.example.com:8080 no_proxy: localhost,127.0.0.0,127.0.1.1,127.0.1.1,local.home
Adresses that should not be contacted through a proxy should be listed in the
An example can be found in group_vars/proxy.
