Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform is a foundation for building and operating automation across an organization. It is a free, open-source application with some commercial options based on Python and YAML. It works agent-less, so there is no need to install and maintain agents on the Ansible endpoints. For the Ansible endpoints, a wide variety of operating systems is supported, including IBM AIX and IBM i. To learn more about Red Hat Ansible, you can watch the quick start video at https://www.ansible.com/resources/videos/quick-start-video.

To automate installation and administration tasks for SAP on AIX and IBM i, the SAP on Power team has published two Ansible collections just now:

Ansible Content for IBM Power Systems - AIX with SAP Software at https://galaxy.ansible.com/ibm/power_aix_sap
Ansible Content for IBM Power Systems - IBM i with SAP Software at https://galaxy.ansible.com/ibm/power_ibmi_sap

In their initial version, both collections cover four use cases that are frequently executed in typical SAP environment:
  • Installing or upgrading the SAP Host Agent
  • Start SAP instances
  • Stop SAP instances
  • Upgrade the kernel of an already existing SAP system
The collections are published under community support and will be maintained and extended by the SAP on Power team.
