Feedback form is now closed.
Ansible is most commonly used to manage servers or individual developer desktops. But it can be an excellent tool to mange a fleet of enterprise desktops.
This session will cover:
1.How SysAdmins can use Ansible to meet desktops' unique requirements in an enterprise environment
2. What roles, modules & features I & other Ansible developers are working on to improve managing desktops
Examples include:
1. Setting default or mandatory settings for GNOME & KDE (e.g., screen lock policies)
2. Firmware updates
3. PackageKit Offline Updates for packages that are disruptive to update while the system is running
4. Installing a massive number of packages (users use desktops for many applications, unlike a server)
5. Setting permissions for graphical apps with PolicyKit
