# Arch Infrastructure

This repository contains the complete collection of ansible playbooks and roles for the Arch Linux infrastructure.

5
6
7
It also contains git submodules so you have to run `git submodule update --init
--recursive` after cloning or some tasks will fail to run.

#### Instructions
All systems are set up the same way. For the first time setup in the Hetzner rescue system,
10
run the provisioning script: `ansible-playbook playbooks/tasks/install-arch.yml -l $host`.

The provisioning script configures a sane basic systemd with sshd. By design, it is NOT idempotent.
After the provisioning script has run, it is safe to reboot.

14
15
Once in the new system, run the regular playbook: `HCLOUD_TOKEN=$(misc/get_hcloud_api_key_ansible.sh) ansible-playbook playbooks/$hostname.yml`.
This playbook is the one regularity used for administrating the server and is entirely idempotent.

##### Note about first time certificates

The first time a certificate is issued, you'll have to do this manually by yourself. First, configure the DNS to
point to the new server and then run a playbook onto the server which includes the nginx role. Then on the server,
it is necessary to run the following once:

    certbot certonly --email webmaster@archlinux.org --agree-tos --rsa-key-size 4096 --renew-by-default --webroot -w /var/lib/letsencrypt/ -d <domain-name>
24

25
26
Note that some roles already run this automatically.

##### Note about packer

We use packer to build snapshots on hcloud to use as server base images.
In order to use this, you need to install packer and then run

32
	packer build -var $(./misc/get_hcloud_api_key_packer.sh) packer/archlinux.json

This will take some time after which a new snapshot will have been created on the primary hcloud archlinux project.

##### Note about terraform

We use terraform to provision a part of the infrastructure on hcloud.
In order to use this, you need to install terraform and then run

41
    terraform plan -var $(./misc/get_hcloud_api_key_packer.sh) terraform
42
43
44
45

This will show you planned changes between the current infrastructure and the desired infrastructure.
You can then run

46
    terraform apply -var $(./packer/get_hcloud_api_key_packer.sh) terraform
47
48

to actually apply your changes.

##### Note about opendkim

The opendkim DNS data has to be added to DNS manually. The roles verifies that the DNS is correct before starting opendkim.

The file that has to be added to the zone is `/etc/opendkim/private/$selector.txt`.

### Finding servers requiring security updates

Arch-audit can be used to find servers in need of updates for security issues.

    ansible all -a "arch-audit -u"

#### Updating servers

The following steps should be used to update our managed servers:

* pacman -Syu
68
* manually update the kernel, since it is in IgnorePkg by default
69
70
71
72
* sync
* checkservices
* reboot

## Ansible repo workflows

### Replace vault password and change vaulted passwords

 - Generate a new key and save it as ./new-vault-pw: `pwgen -s 64 1 > new-vault-pw`
 - `for i in $(ag ANSIBLE_VAULT -l); do ansible-vault rekey --new-vault-password-file new-vault-pw $i; done`
 - Change the key in misc/vault-password.gpg
 - `rm new-vault-pw`
