Configuration Advice


Looking for some general configuration guidance and advice.
I am importing my servers from AWS.

I am sorting them into Hostgroups based on tags set on AWS that are imported is variables.
This is working fine.

I am applying my Standard Server Health Check that contains these services

Some of my servers may not have all of those service for example http and ssl.

What is the best way to remove those services from specific hosts?

We define every service with an ignore rule e.g.:

ignore where host.vars.linux_memory_disable

With that we can prevent assigning them from particular hosts by adding to their host objects e.g.:

vars.linux_memory_disable = true

What field are you putting the ignore in?

it is a custom field like this:

you create custom fields in director to add vars to objects.

These vars can be used for assign rules to decide if applicable or not
