Notes

Note

  • A default installation of ACI Multi-Site ships with admin password ‘we1come!’ which requires a password change on first login. See the examples of how to change the ‘admin’ password using Ansible.

  • Please read the mso_guide for more detailed information on how to manage your MSO infrastructure using Ansible.

  • This module was written to support Multi Site Orchestrator v2.1 or newer. Some or all functionality may not work on earlier versions.
