Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
In this lab challenge your Ansible configuration management skills are put to the test. You need to complete several tasks using Ansible to configure a host to server a web application over HTTP and a web page over HTTPS. Use your knowledge of Ansible concepts and the command-line interface (CLI) to troubleshoot and resolve the issues in the provided configuration to pass all of the checks before time runs out.
