error: ModuleNotFoundError No module named msrest msrestazure

Recently I have updated my Ansible to the latest 2.10.9 version and when I try to execute a playbook, but failed with the below error. The Ansible playbook is to provision resources in the Azure cloud and Ansible is installed on Macbook.

Error message

MacBook-Pro:Automation$ ansible-playbook site_grafana.yaml 

[WARNING]: No inventory was parsed, only implicit localhost is available

[WARNING]: provided hosts list is empty, only localhost is available. Note that the implicit localhost does not match 'all'

The tutorial is how I fixed the above error in my MacBook.  From the error message, I have noticed the line The error was: ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘msrest'”  so I went ahead and installed the package “msrest”. “msrest” is an Azure dependency required for this Ansible version. To install this dependency execute the below command.

 

MacBook-Pro:Automation$ pip install msrest

I triggered my ansible script again, thinking that the installation of the above package will resolve the issue.

MacBook-Pro:Automation$ ansible-playbook site_grafana.yaml

This time also failed with another Azure/ python dependency which is “msrestazure”. So I understand that installing Azure dependency one by one will not help, I have installed all dependency in a single command.

I triggered the ansible-playbook command again and this time it worked.
