Having watched the Intro to Ansible series I can't figure out how to get it working for a Windows machines. Are there any plans to cover what's required for this?
Ansible for Windows
Believe it or not, Ansible has some fairly straightforward instructions on how to setup a Windows Host in order utilize all the powerful features. Check out this document here.
For Ansible to communicate to a Windows host and use Windows modules, the Windows host must meet these requirements:
Ansible can generally manage Windows versions under current and extended support from Microsoft. Ansible can manage desktop OSs including Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, and server OSs including Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, and 2019.
Ansible requires PowerShell 3.0 or newer and at least .NET 4.0 to be installed on the Windows host.
A WinRM listener should be created and activated.
Hope that helps!
