Merging Ansible with Zabbix under Debian 10.
I recenty rediscovered Ansible and wondered if I could use Ansible to create trigger actions and scripts to maintain my home lab. It turns out you can with some adjustments to the Zabbix server.
As an example I use Zabbix to monitor the available updates on my Debian vm’s. When updates are detected, I fire up my dedicated Ansible vm and run my update playbook, which works fine. The only downside is that I must boot the dedicated Ansible server and run the playbooks against the “to be updated” hosts. This is a bit time consumming and wondered if I could update the vm using Zabbix.
What if I could run the playbooks directly from within the Zabbix instance? Mmmm!
I went on the net looking for examples of such howto’s, but wasn’t able to find any. Guess I had to make my own then.

love really appreciate Zabbix. Since I am working with Zabbix for quite some time now, I’m eager to test new releases, which I do. The most simple way is to grab the appliance from the main repo and swing it into WMware workstation (or Virtualbox for that matter).
As I know the boys and girls at Zabbis SIA are really doing there best, I have noticed some
bugs configuration errors which really are annoying. Within this post I will summarize what I have found within the nice Zabbix appliances and hopefully will help you on your own Zabbix way. Continue reading Zabbix Appliance Glitches
Well, it took me a while, but I feel I’m on a new crossroad right now! Today I found the real power of Docker Containers, Zabbix, Mariadb & Synology. In one word WOW!
I guess I am now obliged to get a tut up and running within a few days as I did struggle to get 1+1=2 running up and functional. Stay tuned.

As promised. I have released the dashboard code on Github. Please remember! This is my initial commit so bugs are included. As for myself, I’m not a programmer but more a graphical designer and I hope someone will enhance the code.
