I would like to know if there is a way to configure Ansible to have its own log files instead of writing to /var/log/messages on RHEL server.


According to their site:


This behavior is not on by default. Note that ansible will, without 
this setting, record module arguments called to the syslog of managed machines. 
  • I have that setting on my local Ansible server, are you saying that I need to have /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg on each managed server to be able to do this ? I did a quick test and it did not work. – Ask and Learn May 21 '15 at 1:05
