I am very new to ansible and I am trying to run a playbook to change root password of hosts so I am using the expect command of pexpect module. I successfully managed to install pexpect v4.7 with python 2.7 on the hosts and on the local server running the playbook. However when the playbook is being run, it fails with error: "The pexpect python module is required"
According to the requirements, pexpect and python are of the correct version
Files installed on hosts for pexpect and python: /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pexpect /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pexpect-4.7.0-py2.7.egg-info /usr/pexpect-4.7.0 /usr/pexpect-4.7.0/doc/api/pexpect.rst /usr/pexpect-4.7.0/pexpect.egg-info /usr/pexpect-4.7.0/tests/pexpectTest.py /usr/pexpect-4.7.0/pexpect /usr/pexpect-4.7.0/build/lib/pexpect
The playbook is as follows:
--- - hosts: all become: true tasks: - name: change password for root user expect: command: passwd root responses: (?i)password: "password"
Am I doing something wrong? Please help!
