Use Ansible through Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux

In this blog i am writing the steps on installing and using the Ansible on Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux

First Enable the “Developer mode” and “Windows Subsystem for Linux”, after reboot open bash

Installing Ansible

  • Open bash prompt (by running bash in run )
  • Install Python PIP
    sudo apt-get -y install python-pip python-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev
  • Install Ansible by running
    pip install ansible --user
  • –user installs package local to the user account instead of global to avoid permission issues with PIP and Subsystem
  • Add the path
    echo 'PATH=$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc
  • Run source ~/.bashrc to update the path

Verify Ansible Installation

ansible --version
