Ansible is a great tool for automating tasks on multiple servers. It is easy to learn and use and it is very powerful. Ansible is written in Python and it uses SSH to connect to the servers or devices you want to manage like routers, switches, etc. There needs to be a central server where Ansible is installed and from there you can manage all your servers or devices.
In this post, we will create that central server and install Ansible on Ubuntu 22.04 from the official Ubuntu repositories or from the Ansible PPA repositories depending on your needs. The first step is to update the system to the latest packages so that we can install Ansible from the official Ubuntu repositories.
