Hi Guys,

I am trying to run ansible commands in my managed nodes. But it is showing that it needs sshpass software. I tried to install sshpass software in my system. But I got the below error message.

[root@localhost ~]# yum install sshpass

The sshpass software is not part of the RedHat DVD. You need to download an extra package for this. This software is a part of the epel-release package. You can follow the below-given steps to install this software.

  • Download epel-release rpm in your system.


  • Install this rpm in your system.

$ rpm -ivh epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm
  • Now install sshpass software in your system. 

$ yum install sshpass
