Chapter 2. Installing RHEL System Roles in your system

To use the RHEL System Roles, install the required packages in your system.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Install the rhel-system-roles package on the system that you want to use as a control node:

    # yum install rhel-system-roles

    If you do not have a Red Hat Ansible Engine Subscription, you can use a limited supported version of Red Hat Ansible Engine provided with your Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription. In this case, follow these steps:

    1. Enable the RHEL Ansible Engine repository:

      # subscription-manager refresh
      
      # subscription-manager repos --enable ansible-2-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
    2. Install Ansible Engine:

      # yum install ansible

As a result, you are able to create an Ansible playbook.
