In this lab, you’ll learn about writing and running a playbook that:

  • Creates a user
  • Adds the user to the sudo group
  • Copies a local SSH public key to the user’s authorized_keys file

What Do You Need?

  • A minimum of two Oracle Linux systems with the following configuration:

    • a non-root user with sudo permissions
    • ssh keypair for the non-root user
    • the ability to ssh from one host (control-node) to the other (host) using passwordless ssh login
