Pretty much what the title said.

Is anyone familiar with building a new vmware rhel 7 guest server using Ansible? I'm really just curious of the various options of provisioning a new virtual guest from the ground up. We can use templates for some use cases, but in situations where we don't know the filesystem requirements beforehand, templates don't help.

I'm just dipping my toe into the Ansible waters and from the little I've read it 'should' be possible do this but I haven't tried it in practice yet.

Not I. Should promote this discussion to see if anyone in Delphiland knows.

Nah, I doubt you'll find anyone familiar with it outside this forum.

I began self-studying VMWare and got the VCA, but it's pretty tough if you don't use it daily. I'd like to find a way to get free hands-on training. Anyway, sorry I was no help.

I got sent for a training class a few months back, but I'm still limited in my VMware knowledge. We have another guy who manages the vmware infrastructure, I just do some guest related work for provisioning new servers.

I figured I'd throw it out there just in case somewhere wandered along and found it, but it's sort of a specialist technology in a way. I only know just enough to be dangerous lol.
