Permission denied while running the playbook

I'm trying to run a playbook using this command

ansible-playbook lamp.yml

I get this:

PLAY [host1] *******************************************************************

TASK [Gathering Facts] *********************************************************

ok: [host1]

TASK [Add ppa Repository] ******************************************************

fatal: [host1]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "module_stderr": "Shared connection to host1 closed.\r\n", "module_stdout": "sudo: a password is required\r\n", "msg": "MODULE FAILURE", "rc": 1}

 [WARNING]: Could not create retry file '/etc/ansible/lamp.retry'.

[Errno 13] Permission denied: u'/etc/ansible/lamp.retry'

Hey @Hari, try executing your playbook using this command:

ansible-playbook lamp.yml -K

Add a flag -K which will ask you for sudo password and then continue.
