Step 1: Get Info#

Get Repository#

  • Open the terminal
  • Navigate to a folder (AKA directory) where you would like to store this project.
    • Either do so graphically, or use the command-line.
    • Here are some helpful commands for doing so:
      • pwd to see what directory you're currently in
      • ls to list child directories
      • cd <folder-name> to change directories (cd .. to go up to the parent directory)
      • mkdir <new-folder-name> to create a new directory
  • Copy/paste the following and hit enter:
    git clone
  • Change into the newly created directory
  • The commands and output should resemble the following example:
$ pwd
$ mkdir ansible-project
$ cd ansible-project/
$ git clone
Cloning into 'Ansible-OpenShift-Provisioning'...

$ cd Ansible-OpenShift-Provisioning/
$ ls   docs        mkdocs.yaml roles
LICENSE     ansible.cfg inventories playbooks   

Get Pull Secret#

  • In a web browser, navigate to Red Hat's Hybrid Cloud Console, click the text that says 'Copy pull secret' and save it for the next step.

Gather Environment Information#

  • You will need a lot of information about the environment this cluster will be set-up in.
  • You will need the help of at least your IBM zSystems infrastructure team so they can provision you a storage group. You'll also need them to provide you with
  • IP address range, hostnames, subnet, gateway, how much disk space you have to work with, etc.
  • A full list of variables needed are found on the next page. Many of them are filled in with defaults or are optional.
  • Please take your time. I would recommend having someone on stand-by in case you need more information or need to ask a question about the environment.
