Chapter 2. Installing RHEL System Roles

Before starting to use System Roles, you must install it in your system.

2.1. Installing RHEL System Roles in your system

This paragraph is the procedure module introduction: a short description of the procedure.

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.
