Do not synchronously wait for the requested operation to finish. Enqueued job will continue without Ansible blocking on its completion. For systemd to work with 'user', the executing user must have its own instance of dbus started systemd requirement. The user dbus process is normally started during normal login, but not during the run of Ansible tasks. Otherwise you will probably get a 'Failed to connect to bus: no such file or directory' error.

This issue is still waiting on your response. I hit this issue with zabbix-agent on debian 8 jessie with systemd with latest ansible release 2.
Then, it works! With the patch applied against my local Ansible, problem solved! Sevice module back to business. Reproduced in ansible 2. My worked aroud is - name: Enabled service command: systemctl reenable my. If the service action plugin detects an OS using systemd the service task does not use the service module but the systemd module unless you set the use: service parameter on the task. While this is still a workaround it's a lot cleaner than just calling systemctl directly or disabling and the reenabling the service.

Walk around this problem by using this task - name: Ensure supervisor launches on boot become: yes command: systemctl enable supervisor Server Ubuntu Actually that's pretty easy to fix I hit this issue with zabbix-agent on debian 8 jessie with systemd with latest ansible release 2.
FIX Ensure Varnish services start on system boot Services not running automaticlly after a reboot.
As a workaround until the bug is fixed you can use: - name : Enalbe my service service : name : myservice enabled : True use : service. Add automated tests for Debian 8, fix systemd not enabling Ubuntu This commit was signed with a verified signature.
Currently, there appears to be an issue with Ansible in which, if a service is already enabled with sysvinit, the service will not be enabled with Ansible. This appears to be the condition with this repository; likely, the upstream package is bringing in the sysvinit script as it's not being deployed by ansible and enabling it.
While, confusingly, the package is "using" the sysvinit style service tool for enabling the service, systemd implements a compatibility layer that allows enabling it via this shim. This correctly enables the service.

I guess it is not possible, respective useful, to conduct ansible-playbook tests in a docker instance, when they incorporate "service enabled" tests that rely in turn on a running init system, in that case of centos 7 this would be systemd. So, for instance, testing this simple nginx yaml snippet incorporates a service: state: started declaration.
Actually I am testing Ansible playbooks quite a lot with a docker container as the target host - the trick is to divert the calls to SystemD's "systemctl" I personally use Vagrant with Virtualbox a lot for testing, which is of course also an option.

Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. In my Ansible play I am restarting database then trying to do some operations on it. Restart command returns as soon as restart is started, not when db is up. Next command tries to connect to the database. That command my fail when db is not up. Then retries are not executed at all, because first command execution fails whole play.
Is there a easy way to retry failures until I have success, but fail when no success from last retry? I don't understand your claim that the " first command execution fails whole play ". It wouldn't make sense if Ansible behaved this way.
It waits for a condition before continuing, for example for a port to become open or closed, for a file to exist or not, or for some content in a file.

Please post the whole task. I don't understand your concern -- first execution should not fail the play if you write it correctly.
The concern seems clear to me. I see the same behavior. When the first attempt fails, Ansible fails the whole playbook. It shouldn't be like that, but it is. Perhaps the until command is necessary? Worth noting to others who find this is that retries is part of a loop and needs an until to work. Without until it will silently fail. Active Oldest Votes.

After a successful ping, try to connect to your hosts manually, maybe the problem is not coming from Ansible. MehB thanks for your attention.
I don't know if its correct, but I tried this:. I'll try destroy the vm and run again. No, I think this is a bug which needs fixing. If users have to go to the IRC channel to decipher a common error message, then the error message is inadequite. It should be rephrased in a clearer way. That's the problem.Ansible - A Beginner's Tutorial, Part 1
The message is saying "task x failed. Do y to retry".
So obviously users are going to assume that doing y will make Ansible retry just task x and maybe subsequent tasks. Skip to content.

Many of my Nginx role users are reporting the same behavior under Ansible 2. Lots of users are now reporting this issue I think it's not related to nginx or a specific OS Distri.
