Ansible + why yum not install the latest version

maihabunash asked:

I am installed successfully the Ansible tool from yum repository as

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

ansible --version
ansible 1.1

please advice why yum not install the latest ansible version ( 1.9.X )

My answer:


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.
