Hello All,

My lead wants me explore whether we can install IBM MQ using SSH ansible and whether we can create MQ objects using ansible in n number of server.

If any one have done this please let me know whether its possible or not.

Thanks

PK

Location: US: west coast, almost. Otherwise, enroute.

1. Go to google.
2. Search for 'ansible+mq'.

Installation via ansible - Yes, it's possible.

There is no ansible module specific to IBM MQ just like they are for rabbitmq (as far as I know)

So you would create a playbook to Install MQ binaries just like you would install any other generic package.

One of the steps of playbook would be to push MQ package to remote servers from a central location before you can run install steps from the playbook.

One way of package distribution: If you have rpm based OS all across, then you could create a repository of MQ rpms in one of the central location; run a web server on this location. And have individual nodes pull those rpms from that central location using yum. You would have to Add/Enable MQ repository metadata info in these individual nodes at /etc/yum.repos.d/ . The benefit is that you could add/edit rpms going forward ( say MQ FP install ). This is indeed scalable.

For more info - https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/6/html/deployment_guide/sec-managing_yum_repositories


On MQ object creation via ansible: Again since there are no modules available but you could write your own mq-script and hit that script to all end nodes. Use ansible ad-hoc command interface [script module] if you wish.

Advice: Take this task if you have written few playbooks already or have time to learn. Else get an ansible expert to do it for you.
