How to Install Ansible on Fedora 21 via Yum

Reading Time: < 1 minuteAnsible is an automation engine, similar to Chef or Puppet, that can be used to ensure deployment and configuration consistency across many servers, and keep servers and applications up-to-date. Though, unlike some other tools, Ansible does not require a client component/agent.
Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing Ansible, an automation tool, on Fedora 21.

Step #1: The Installation
As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages: sudo yum -y update Then let’s install Ansible and any required packages: sudo yum -y install ansible
Step #2: Verify The Installation
Check the version of Ansible that is installed: ansible --version Which should yield something similar to: ansible 1.7.2
