    On the other hand, for VMWare I decide to use their API. For this I'd look at the Python libraries for VMWare (see [here](https://github.com/vmware/pyvmomi)) and start reading the documentation. I'd write simple scripts that do the things I want to do. There are some great [code samples](https://github.com/vmware/vsphere-automation-sdk-python) to even get you started.

    Use a linux server to set things up for running the playbooks pip install pyvnomi pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/vmware/vsphere-automation-sdk-python.git ansible-galaxy collection install community.vmware Make sure you have vcenter setup as this is where the magic happens (where the API and all the other capabilities exist) and you should be running at least vCenter Essentials Kit or Standard with a separate license for vCenter. The free version is kind of watered down and does not enable the APIs for full automation out of the box. You would need to use something similar to pexpect in order to orchestrate ssh commands that may or may not work in the free version.

    That works so far. I have in the playbook then the ansible_password variable which is stored per vault. So far everything is fine. But now I don't want to hardcode the servers in the test environment but they should come from AD groups. For this I use an AD plugin: https://github.com/mdhowle/ansible-ad-inventory
