This Puppet module manages Ansible for setting up an OpenShift cluster with the official openshift-ansible Playbooks.


What openshift affects

The module has two "roles":

  • openshift::role::ansible_master:
    • Installs Ansible
    • Checks out openshift-ansible from git
    • Configures SSH for Ansible
    • Writes the inventory file in YAML format
  • openshift::role::node:
    • Installs required packages
    • Enables NetworkManager
    • Add some missing CA certificates

Setup Requirements

Required modules:

Beginning with openshift

On the host you want to run Ansible, apply the ansible_master role and pass the inventory to it:

class { 'openshift::role::ansible_master':
  host_groups => {
    'OSEv3' => {
      children => ["nodes", "masters"],
    masters => {
      vars => {
        osm_default_node_selector => "foo=bar",
      hosts => {
        "" => {},
        "" => {},
      children => ["etcd"],
    nodes => {
      hosts => {
        "node[1:9]" => {
          custom_var => true,

This parameters can also be configured in Hiera.

An all nodes, apply the node role:

class { 'openshift::role::node': }
