@chilicat

Thanks for the tutorial, I use ansible 2.2.0 and I had to add add

[win:vars]
....
ansible_winrm_server_cert_validation=ignore

to make it work.

thanks.

Thanks for a great resource!

Two changes I had to make (in addition to the cert_validation above):

Before: with_items: ec2_result.tagged_instances
After: with_items: "{{ ec2_result.tagged_instances }}"

Also had to specifically allow outbound HTTP connections. I think the default may at some point have been to allow all outgoing connections, but the default changed since the time of writing. Without this, the instance can't download ConfigureRemotingForAnsible.ps1. It's probably possible to use a narrower list than this but I didn't investigate further. Just enabling outbound HTTP wasn't quite sufficient.

      - proto: all

        to_port: 65535
        cidr_ip: 0.0.0.0/0
