Upgrading from prior to January 2020 (
all.yml.dist config style)
If you're upgrading from this commit or earlier, these instructions are relevant to you.
Rather than having to merge every new config line into your own
all.yml file, now you only need to maintain the differences that are relevant to you in your own
nas.yml, stored within an inventory directory. Your inventory
nas.yml takes precedence over
group_vars/all.yml, which is how this setup works.
group_vars/all.yml is now tracked as part of the repo.
This will make updates from
master much simpler, as there will be no requirement to merge changes from
all.yml.dist into your own
all.yml any more. You simply pull from master, then add the bits you're interested in into your inventory
Instructions to upgrade from prior to January 2020 (this commit or earlier):
Pull from master. There shouldn't be any merge conflicts unless you've been hacking on the project.
Create your own inventory and config files by copying
inventories/sampleto your own directory:
cp -rfp inventories/sample inventories/my-ansible-nas
my-ansible-nascan be anything you want, but adjust the following instructions accordingly.
Quick and Dirty: Copy the contents of your
Nice and Tidy: Copy only the differences between your own
all.ymland the distribution
inventories/my-ansible-nas/group_vars/nas.yml. This is likely to be things like
ansible_nas_timezone, enabled applications, any application tweaks you've made in config etc.
