Solution Overview

This lab walks the student through the process of automating HPE Nimble storage system with Ansible. It has multiple sections. First, the lab will review how the environment is setup to enable Ansible for Nimble Storage automation. The lab will then guide the user on how to create the first playbook to get the config of the Nimble storage system. The lab will subsequently build more complex playbooks to create volumes, initiator groups, mapping the volumes to the initiator groups and then the optional lab to create datastores on the ESXi servers.
