Install with Ansible

This document presents a non-Kubernetes method of installing a Portworx cluster. Please refer to the Portworx on Kubernetes page if you want to install Portworx on Kubernetes.


To install with Ansible, please use the Ansible Galaxy Role


If you have installed Portworx with Ansible, Portworx needs to be upgraded through the CLI on a node-by-node basis. Please see the upgrade instructions


For Ansible, as long as the same kvdb and clusterID are used, any new nodes can automatically join an existing cluster. Also, be sure to exclude existing nodes from the inventory before running the playbook on the new nodes.
