Install the following packages on your remote system where you want to install openITCOCKPIT with ansible:
apt install python python-dev python-pip python-jinja2 python-paramiko python-crypto git python-yaml
pip install ansible
Ansible accesses remote systems via SSH. I always recommend the root user to use (sudo configuration is not tested). For this purpose, an SSH key must be generated on the client system, which is then distributed to the systems:
ssh-keygen -b 4096
After that the key ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub has to be stored for all targethosts under /root/.ssh/authorized_keys.
If the user is not root on the client machine, the SSH configuration should always be adapted so that the root system is always tried to log on to the target systems:
Host * User root
Ansible also offers other possibilities to connect to the target systems.
These are stored in the official Ansible documentation.
