Ansible Service Module with Systemd Module Explained

by using ansible service module or ansible systemd module you can start, stop, restart and enable the services, so this ansible service module and ansible systemd modules are similar to Linux service command or Linux systemctl command.

NOTE:

  • we use Linux syetmctl command in Redhat(rhel), centos
  • we use Linux service command in ubuntu
  • we can use ansible service module in any machine to start or stop the services
  • we use ansible systemd in redhat to start or stop the services

ansible service module command line or ansible service module ad hoc

here name is nothing but service name, you can mention any service which is running on your target server. here I am starting JBoss-EAP service. so that’s why I mentioned JBoss-EAP

you can mention service like name=httpd, so it will start the httpd service

-m represents module

-a represents arguments

in the state argument, you can mention any one of the following depends on your requirement.

  • reloaded
  • restarted
  • started
  • stopped

here web is the hostname i,e on which server this module will run or execute.

in my case, my target server hostname is the web. here you can mention your target server host-name or group name.

group name represents a group of servers.

so this ad-hoc command will execute on this target server or servers(if you mention group name)

if your servers are not using the systemd init system then you can use below ansible service modules.

starting the service:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl start JBoss-EAP’ or  service JBoss-EAP start

So this will start the service if the service is not running

stop the service:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl stop JBoss-EAP’  or service JBoss-EAP stop

It will stop the service if the service is running

restart the service:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl restart JBoss-EAP or service JBoss-EAP restart

It will restart the service and doesn’t depend on whether the service is running or not

enabling the service:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl enable JBoss-EAP or service JBoss-EAP to enable

It will start the service automatically at boot time only

if your servers are using the systemd init system then you can use below systemd modules

start the service using systemd:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl start JBoss-EAP’

stop the service using systemd:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl stop JBoss-EAP’.

start the service and reload config changes using systemd:

This task is similar to the Linux command ‘systemctl restart jboss-eap’

enable the service using systemd:

  • It Will do nothing if the service is already running.
  • If the service is not running, it will start it.
  • And if the system boots, it will start the service at boot time only

daemon_reload:

We use daemon-reload command after creating new unit files or modifying existing unit files
