comment Ansible Playbook: Ensure a process is running on any one node of a cluster?
Should work, by the look of it, though I still need a way to check with every relevant machine and work out the combined state before I can decide to start a new process. It might be simpler to solve this outside of the automation tools, although I would have thougt that with Ansibles suite of node discovery, dynamic inventory and cluster management features there would be a pretty straight forward way of doing this.

comment Why Place Load-Balancer Behind Firewall?
While the application delivery controllers from F5 are capable of extending basic protection to the associated web servers, few think of them as a fully capable firewalls and fewer still would expect it to be able to protect itself to any significant degree. In other words, the built in firewall can in some cases replace the typical inner firewall, that is behind BigIP, facing the web servers. It cannot replace the typical outer firewall, that is the one in front of the BigIP, facing Internet.

comment Why Place Load-Balancer Behind Firewall?
The primary function of the firewall described here would be to protect the ADC which in turn protects the web servers, in many ways as a firewall would, but with the added benefit of also being a load balancing reverse proxy with traffic management and having the additional features of a web application firewall.

comment Configuring the hostname on Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Nah, we'll be on Oracle Linux 6 for many years yet. Systemd 25 can go away and stay there, as far as I'm concerned.
