DC - updated README to reflect multi-OS changes

parent 12b2a0aa
# Show version # Hosts
You need to update the hosts file : replace the "veos" host with one to which you can connect with ssh. The hosts file in this directory has two hosts defined - one vEOS, one JunOS.
Run ``ansible-playbook -i hosts show_version.yaml``. ```
[all:vars]
ansible_connection=ssh
ansible_user=zork
ansible_host=localhost
[veos_hosts]
veos ansible_port=9022 ansible_ssh_pass=swordfish
#
# Why different passwords? JunOS is a lot stricter. Good!
#
[junos_hosts]
vSRX ansible_port=9023 ansible_ssh_pass=Swordfish123
```
You will need to replace the host information to match your test/learning environment.
Run ``ansible-playbook -i hosts show_version.yaml`` to try out the playbook.

There are device-specific `show version` playbooks. JunOS in particular paginates its output - so you have to run the command through `no-more` to stop it printing `--More--` and pausing for keyboard input which will never come.
