Ansible - Windows Installation

1 - About

Ansible is not certified on Windows and will never. The best solution that we found was to run Ansible inside a docker container.

3 - Steps

To install it:

3.1 - Create the install directory


mkdir c:\ansible

3.2 - Clone the repository

Clone the repository into the install directory


git clone https://github.com/gerardnico/ansible c:\ansible

3.3 - Install Docker for Windows

See Docker - Installation

3.4 - Test Ansible

By asking the version, the Ansible wrapper should download the docker image and print the version at the console.


ansible --version


Ansible Version: 2.8
ansible 2.8.10
  config file = /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
  configured module search path = [u'/home/ansible/.ansible/plugins/modules', u'/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules']
  ansible python module location = /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ansible
  executable location = /usr/bin/ansible
  python version = 2.7.12 (default, Oct  8 2019, 14:14:10) [GCC 5.4.0 20160609]

3.5 - Add the install directory into the PATH environment variable

To be able to run the ansible command line client from anywhere you would add the installation directory to your PATH environment variable
