Disable HA, DRS on Cluster and set up Maintenance mode on ESXi host via Ansible playbook

 

I create playbook to disable HA and DRS on vmware cluster and put esxi host in maintanance mode.

First part of playbook  use module call vmware_cluster.

To install it use: ansible-galaxy collection install community.vmware.

To use it in a playbook, specify: community.vmware.vmware_cluster.

Ansible documentation. https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/collections/community/vmware/vmware_cluster_module.html

 

Second part playbook related with esxi host maintenance mode  use module call vmware_maintenancemode.

Ansible documentation https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/2.5/modules/vmware_maintenancemode_module.html

 

Download playbook >>  ClusterConfVcenter

 

Let’s test it.

  1. Create or download playbook ClusterConfVcenter.yml

Playbook should looks like below, so you need to modyfy some passwords, vcenter ip’s , esxi host name, datacenter name.

2. Before run playbook you need to  Install module by ansible-galaxy collection install community.vmware.

3. Run playbook by type command >> ansible-playbook ansible/ClusterConfVcenter.yml

4. If you don’t notice any errors you can check Cluster settings and Maintenance mode for esx’i host.
