Hi@akhtar,

Every application has some dependencies. Then only the applications can run. Now Ansible is used to configure the systems. So you have some application names in the playbook. Ansible is trying to install them but the applications have some dependencies. Now you can install the dependencies manually or using the Ansible playbook. If possible share your error as well.
