Ensure that your playbook sets
hosts: all as awx manages your host definition
Well that didn’t work still got the same issue.
I found 4 relevant issues on github on the
ERROR! No inventory was parsed, please check your configuration and options. issue:
Although there is no clarity there.
I then found this red hat article (behind a login wall) that tells you that you need to set the inventory plugin as an environment variable:
Update 2022: AWX no longer uses custom virtualenvs – it uses execution environments instead. So this post is probably not relevant.
It looks like this has to do with the custom venv.
I did not follow the documentation properly and the venv needs a few base dependencies that i did not install – namely
psutils and ANSIBLE – Oops.
Anyway actviate the virtualenv and run:
pip install psutil pip install -U "ansible == 2.9.5"
Ensure it has the correct permissions
sudo chmod 0755 /opt/awx_venvs/
After doing that running my playbook I still got an error:
No such file or directory: b'/opt/awx_venvs/provisioning/bin/ansible-playbook'
So I looked at the awx custom venv docs.
I followed the steps but received the same error. The virtualenv setup on the host was not correctly setup within the container.
So I needed to look at the Container based custom venv documentation
Wait scratch that it looks too tough
Custom VirtualEnv as Vars
So I added my
And ran the isntall again but the venvs were not created
So I stopped and removed the containers:
sudo docker stop awx_task awx_web awx_memcached awx_redis awx_postgres
and removed them:
sudo docker rm awx_task awx_web awx_memcached awx_redis awx_postgres
ansible-playbook -i inventory install.yml --extra-vars "@venv_vars.yaml"
Still the venv was not created.
Looking through the code you need to be deploying the kubernetes way version for this to work.
So I used kubernetes and it worked (it’s also better this way as requirements are in code)
I had to add an extra variable to
--- custom_venvs_path: "/opt/awx_venvs" custom_venvs: - name: provisioning python: python3 python_ansible_version: 2.9.5 python_modules: - jmespath - netaddr - pyvcloud
