Using lxc container module in ansible

0 votes

I am using ansible and trying to execute this playbook

- hosts: control
  become: yes
    - name: Stop All Linux Containers
      lxc_container: name={{ item }} state=started
        - app01
        - app02
        - lb01
        - db01

the target is a localhost but it fails and this error comes up:

failed: [] => (item=app01) => {"failed": true, "item": "app01",    "parsed": false}
failed=True msg='The lxc module is not importable. Check the requirements.'
The lxc module is not importable. Check the requirements

Then I tried this:

pip install lxc-python2 

But this also shows error:

lxc.c:27:30: fatal error: lxc/lxccontainer.h: No such file or directory

 #include <lxc/lxccontainer.h>


compilation terminated.

error: command 'x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc' failed with exit status 1

Cleaning up...
Command /usr/bin/python -c "import setuptools, tokenize;__file__='/tmp/pip_build_dhruv/lxc-python2/';exec(compile(getattr(tokenize, 'open', open)(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record /tmp/pip-ZKdf9M-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip_build_dhruv/lxc-python2

This mostly happens when you've not installed lxc-dev package. In your situation it so happens that Debian Repository does not have it and you'll have to use it from third party like ubuntu.
