How to Install Ansible on CentOS 7



Ansible is a free and open source Configuration and automation tool. We can manage a large number of client machines from a central machine. It communicates over SSH and it doesn’t
require installing any agent on the client machines.

Step 1: Follow the article How to install EPEL repository on Centos7 to enable EPEL repository.

Step 2: Install Anisble using below command:

[root@linuxcnf ~]# yum install ansible
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

[root@linuxcnf ~]# 

Step #3: use the below command to check and verify Ansible Installation:

[root@linuxcnf ~]# ansible --version
ansible 2.5.3
  config file = /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
  configured module search path = [u'/root/.ansible/plugins/modules', u'/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules']
  ansible python module location = /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ansible
  executable location = /bin/ansible
  python version = 2.7.5 (default, Apr 11 2018, 07:36:10) [GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-28)]
[root@linuxcnf ~]#
