yum install Ansible

Ansible is great tool even more then puppet

but after yum installation I see that the ansible isn't the latest version

I don't know where you got "ansible 1.1". That's certainly not the current version available in RHEL or EPEL repositories.

EPEL 6 currently has ansible 1.9.2, and you should be using EPEL.

/srv/www/mirrors/epel/6/x86_64/ansible-1.9.2-1.el6.noarch.rpm

Install the EPEL repository to your system, and then try again.


Also remember that you should not attempt to run RHEL without a subscription.

  • or maybe because my python version is 2.6.6? - very strange – maihabunash Aug 17 '15 at 7:51
  • so after I installed by yum the ansible 1.1 can I just download the version 1.9 (rpm) and do upgrade ? – maihabunash Aug 17 '15 at 7:53
  • Hi Hampton please see that --> rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=ansible , ( +1 ) – maihabunash Aug 17 '15 at 13:28
  • seems that according to this link the latest version for red-hat is 1.1-2 ( or maybe I missed here something ) – maihabunash Aug 17 '15 at 13:29
  • Did you read a single word of this answer?! – Michael Hampton Aug 17 '15 at 15:25
