Getting error in ansible The lxc module is not importable Check the requirements

0 votes

I am working on ansible tool.

My task looks something like this:

- name: Create a started container
      name: test-container-started
      container_log: true
      template: ubuntu
      state: started
      template_options: --release trusty

I get the following errors:

> TASK: [lxc | Create a started container]
> **************************************  failed: [localhost] => {"failed": true, "parsed": false}
> BECOME-SUCCESS-azsyqtknxvlowmknianyqnmdhuggnanw failed=True msg='The
> lxc module is not importable. Check the requirements.' The lxc module
> is not importable. Check the requirements.
> FATAL: all hosts have already failed -- aborting
Can anyone help me with this query?

Here is what you can try.

If you will use Debian or Ubuntu as host system there is already python-lxc package available.The best way to install it is Ansible of course, just before lxc_container tasks:


    - name: Install provisioning dependencies
      apt: name=python-lxc

    - name: Create docker1.lxc container
        name: docker1

I hope it would resolve your query.
