Veeam and vSphere Tag Integration with Ansible

This post was originally published on this site

VMware vSphere Tags are a great tool to build a deep integration with other VMware or third-party products. Veeam already could use vSphere Tags as a backup object in Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 Update 2b (Thanks to Jim Jones and Luciano Patrão for helping me out with this info). This article will show how a Veeam and vSphere Tag Integration with Ansible can be done. I would like to demonstrate at first what is possible with the Ansible standard community modules and then also the possibility to create a Veeam backup job with vSphere Tags as a backup object with my own Ansible Veeam module.
