I'm trying to get MD5 checksum of a file using Ansible. How do I write the task for it? What module do I use? Can you help me out with this? Thanks

Hi @Travis, you can use the win_stat module for this purpose. This module basically abstracts all your file/folder information. It only works for windows though. Have a look at this example:

- name: Get MD5 checksum of a file
    path: Path_to_file
    get_checksum: yes
    checksum_algorithm: md5
  register: md5_checksum
