RHEL 8 Migration

My current project is moving off CentOS 7 to RHEL 8. I am doing this partly due to the deprecation of CentOS 8 into Stream but also I want to redo everything properly, using all the things I have learned since first standing up my environment and learning about Ansible, Docker, etc.

I wont expand on things too much here, but plan to make subsequent posts for the major steps and things that I learn along the way.

📝 I am using RHEL Developer licensing that I setup in my RHEL Developer post


  1. Move to RHEL 8 from CentOS 7
  2. Utilize Kickstart for initial installs
  3. Ansible improvements
    1. Run ansible as its own user
    2. Utilize Ansible for all configurations
      1. Leave [[SELinux Notes SELinux]] on and learn it
  4. Move docker into volumes and other best practices
