Hi Guys,

I am trying to configure the yum repository for docker using Ansible-playbook. But it is showing me the below error.

[root@localhost ansible_playbooks]# ansible-playbook docker_task.yml

Hi@akhtar,

You got this error because you did not add any description in your Ansible-playbook. In some versions of Ansible, it is mandatory to add a description when we configure yum. I have attached one playbook below for your reference.

- hosts: all
  tasks:
  - name: Add repository for docker
    yum_repository:
      name: docker
      description: configure yum for docker
      file: docker_repo
      baseurl: https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/7/x86_64/stable/
