Using Ansible Modules to Manage Filesystems in Your Environment
Requirements change, and datacenters evolve. Being able to manage storage configurations on the fly is an important skill. Ansible allows for that using the `lvg`, `lvol`, `filesystem`, and `mount` modules. This lab will allow you to practice using those modules. *This course is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat.*
