Unable to successfully install galaxy-ng

The target node is a RHEL9 VM and it is a Satellite 6 client.

The intent is have an on premise mirror of galaxy.ansible.com.

I’ve been following Installation - Galaxy NG and I’ve tried both the RPM and Python package methods unsuccessfully.

Not sure what info is required certainly the installation docs don’t seem to be accurate anymore.

@tannerjc @rochacbruno - we also now have a Jira issue that is also having problems with an onprem install following those guidelines…

Here’s what they wrote:
Key Dependency Versions

Used OS: Rocky Linux 9

Used ansible-core:

ansible [core 2.15.6]
config file = /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
configured module search path = [‘/home/galaxy/.ansible/plugins/modules’, ‘/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules’]
ansible python module location = /home/galaxy/.local/lib/python3.11/site-packages/ansible
ansible collection location = /home/galaxy/.ansible/collections:/usr/share/ansible/collections
executable location = /home/galaxy/.local/bin/ansible
python version = 3.11.2 (main, May 24 2023, 00:00:00) [GCC 11.3.1 20221121 (Red Hat 11.3.1-4)] (/bin/python3.11)
jinja version = 3.1.2
libyaml = True

I couldn’t choose the correct affected version, which is 4.8.1
Steps to Reproduce

get access to a new EL 9 system
setup seperate useraccount (used "galaxy" as username)
install ansible-core from pypi
Run }}{{{{ansible-galaxy collection install pulp.pulp_installer}}
Run }}{{git clone https://gist.github.com/629ba52d68301cc9798227b87704df84.git example
Run cd example
{{{}{}Run }}{{ansible-galaxy install -r ~/.ansible/collections/ansible_collections/pulp/pulp_installer/requirements.yml}}
{{Create hosts file:}}
      ansible_connection: local
{{{}Run }}{}{{ansible-playbook enduser-install.yml -i hosts --extra-vars "@enduser-install-vars.yml{}}}{}{}

(Jira issue includes the full log).

Thanks for any help/advice y’all can give (or docs updates to clear this up).

Hey @samccann!

Great that you found my Jira issue :slight_smile:
Unfortunately it’s gone now, do you know how this can happen?

As I have written there I have been starting to look into, why the published artifacts are failing (something dependency tree), but running it from source works.
Wanted to see if I can help somewhere there, but now it’s just gone?

Thank you for your help!

Cheers, lumarel

Not sure why the Jira disappeared but I’ll look into it.

Meanwhile post here with anything you come up with, thanks!

I flipped the jira’s security level back to “None”, so it should be visible again.

@samccann, @tannerjc: Thank you to you two, interesting that the creator also looses access if the sec level gets bumped :sweat_smile:
