I MUST be doing something wrong. I am completely at a loss.
I’m building out some Ansible playbooks on Ubuntu. When testing the playbooks on CentOS, they return “OK” (basically saying everything worked). However, when I go into
/var/log/yum.log, the package manager wasn’t run. When I run
yum update I can see that there are packages pending.
Digging at Ansible a bit, I see it’s using
dpkg to do things. That’s weird. So I jump on Fedora and run the exact same playbook – And it’s using
What the hell is going on? You HAVE to be on the same host as you’re deploying to? That can’t be right. Everything I’ve heard about this tool I never once heard anyone say anything about that.
I’ve seen some ways to override certain package managers, but everyone is saying not to do it.
Any advice? Hints? Tips?
