Using Ansible on Windows

Note

Making Open Source More Inclusive

Red Hat is committed to replacing problematic language in our code, documentation, and web properties. We are beginning with these four terms: master, slave, blacklist, and whitelist. We ask that you open an issue or pull request if you come upon a term that we have missed. For more details, see our CTO Chris Wright’s message.

Welcome to the Ansible guide for Microsoft Windows. This guide shows you how to set up Ansible on a Windows host, configure WinRM for Ansible, perform operations, and tune performance. Additionally, because Windows is not a POSIX-compliant operating system, Ansible interacts with Windows hosts differently to Linux/Unix hosts. You can find information about those differences, and everything you need to know about using Ansible on Windows, in this guide.
