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.


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

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