With one, simple request to Alexa, I can deploy lab machines to Proxmox, AWS, and Linode with Ansible!! I’ve automated my entire lab creation process!! In this video, I’m going to tell you an automation story, a tale of how I tried to automate everything and….went a little crazy in the process. But it was amazing and honestly…kind of addicting. I’ll also show you how you can automate your lab as well.

  2. Hi NextwokChuck, I have been following you. You do a great work. I work for NextPCB. We would like to sponsor your projects. You can send a DM for more details.

  3. Very nice video Chuck tahnk you !
    If I can give you a little opinion, next time add a little more time to the end of video so we can have the time to read the notification and get a "wahou face" like yours 😉 and wait a bit before adding the "NetworkChuck" logo, otherwise it hides the content of the screen 🙁

  4. Seen a few of your videos and overall a fan, but this one seemed a bit click-baity (sorry)… I was really keen to understand more about how to use Alexa to automate other IT tasks, hopefully get a basic overview of creating a skill, etc… But you spend about 5 seconds on this, simply saying: "Alexa uses Zapier which runs some python code" (great! 🙄)

  5. Another way to do this is to create Ubuntu server template that has CloudInit integrated into itself. Then you can define static IP by modifying cloudinit parameters. I use that to populate IP and SSH key.

  6. Bro, your wife is pregnant again? Are you trying to catch up with me on how many kids you have? I'm at 7… You're at… what 5? 6? You're catching up. I'm going to have to up my game and have a couple more to stay ahead. LOL

    Congratulations.

  7. As alternative to nmap you could have used arp-scan but everyone their own. 😉 I like ansible but provisioning resources on my XCP-NG cluster or in the cloud I like to use terraform more as it holds a state file and takes care the state is always as expected on an apply. your playbook with randomized name will always create a new VM with everyrun. If I would want to setup an automation job to take care that my infrastructure is always how I expect it it wouldn't work.

  8. I really wanted to advance on my current career. I have been into a Helpdesk or Service Desk for 5years and it seems nothing is happening. To the point I wanted to change career. I really wanted to learn the skills that you have, so at least before I retire I can say I achieve something.

  9. Without vm I literally changed 5 os's first the pre-installed windows 7 then by flashing I installed windows 10 then pop os(linux) didn't work, installed kali linux(didn't work) about to die laptop without any os, installed windows 7 back😂

  10. @ networkchuck I need help I tried to change my administrator password when i went away for a funeral to keep everyone out of my important information and when I got back I can't get in the password I thought I changed it to is wrong and I don't know what to do I need help it's windows ten the hello pin was set up but both pin and password are wrong and I'm not getting a reset password option I'll show you it's not for any bad purpose or anything I can prove it's my computer and show id everything I just don't know how to fix this and I have very important stuff I need access to

  11. you're a genius, funny and energetic chuck . I mean come on look at me now from nothing to something bigger just because of your tutorials. all your videos are clear, funny and catchy. you deserve more than just credit bro. thanks for being there,
