Hi Guys,

I have created one playbook in Ansible. Now I am trying to run this playbook. But it is showing me the below error.

$ ansible-playbook web.yml
ERROR! the role '/root/web' was not found in /root/roles:/root/.ansible/roles:/usr/share/ansible/roles:/etc/ansible/roles:/root
The error appears to be in '/root/web.yml': line 3, column 7, but may
be elsewhere in the file depending on the exact syntax problem.
The offending line appears to be:
    - /root/web
      ^ here

You are trying to use ansible role in your playbook. But you did not set the path for the role. So set the path in your ansible.cfg file as shown below.

$ vim /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
inventory = /etc/myhosts.txt
host_key_checking = False
roles_path= /etc/myroles
