    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.
