Andrey, Hi, Happy New Year! I decided to install a fresh AWX 15.0.1 on a fresh AIX 7.2 (7200-04-02-2028) so downloaded the image and installed the pre-reqs as usual. I then expanded the installation media into /tmp/awx/awx-install before changing to that directory. Here's what happened: abc123-awx:/tmp/awx# ...

Mostafa, Hi, no problem, just use your browser to pull down the rpm and tym_bundle.tar and then transfer to the LPAR. In the yum_bundle you'll have the following, all of which get installed when you run the rpm -Uvh /var.tmp/*.rpm ca-certificates-2016.10.7-2.aix6.1.ppc.rpm curl-7.52.1-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm ...

Mostafa, Hi, you need to download (1) rpm, so you have the latest, and then (2) the yum bundle which includes the necessary dependencies. It'll be easier than trying to work out what you do/don't need Python dependency wise. Regards, Steve ------------------------------ Steve Munday AIX, IBM i, PowerVM ...

Mostafa, Hi, you'll need to download to a PC/Laptop first and then transfer to the LPAR before running the installations for rpm and yum. Regards, Steve ------------------------------ Steve Munday AIX, IBM i, PowerVM ------------------------------

Hi, you could also try the following as this will give you the latest rpm & yum packages (yum bundle includes Python plus dependencies). Download latest rpm from IBM and place in /var/tmp http://ftp.software.ibm.com/aix/freeSoftware/aixtoolbox/INSTALLP/ppc/rpm.rte cd /var/tmp installp -caYgd /var/tmp ...

Fernando, Hi, we tend to monitor memory usage and then re-boot accordingly as we've seen issues with low memory affecting Frame firmware updates/upgrades in the past. So, for example, running monhmc -r mem and seeing the below would suggest we've 0.5GB "free" so might be time to re-boot. Every 4.0s: ...

John, Hi, good morning. Is it a case that (IBM?) simply don't support this approach even though, technically, it is do-able OR is there a valid reason why such a method cannot be used I wonder? Thinking about it from a "DR" perspective then surely such an approach is exactly what you'd be doing in order ...

Andrey, Hi, thanks for the guidance around "localhost". I updated the inventory and used an alternate "node" LPAR rather than looping back to the AWX LPAR itself. Once done, I have a successful execution of the flrtvc playbook (my variant) which Emails me a report of the exposures. I'm still waiting ...

Andrey, Hi, I seem to be going around in circles with credentials!! Here's what I'm wanting to do. 1. Starting as "awx", run a playbook 2. Switch to "aix-admin-service-account" on AWX LPAR ["aix-admin-service-account" is on all LPARs and has public/private keys deployed] 3. Connect to "remote" LPAR as ...

Andrey, Ah-ha! I'll remove my (IBM) collections then :-) I did as you recommended and here's the result as I read somewhere that I'd need the Galaxy Server defined too. # ansible-config dump --only-changed COLLECTIONS_PATHS(/etc/ansible/ansible.cfg) = ['/var/lib/awx/venv/vendor/awx_ansible_collections'] ...

Andrey, Hi, now that AWX is working nicely I'm moving on to trying things out with the power_aix collection however whilst I've had things working nicely for some time via the CLI I am struggling to see how to link things together when it comes to AWX (Tower) and a collection. I'm thinking it's all ...

Many thanks for making the changes within the process. All the best, Steve ------------------------------ Steve Munday AIX, IBM i, PowerVM ...
