cpAnsible installation on Ubuntu 16.04 

Hi guys,

 

I am installing Ansible with CheckPoint module in my lab (on Ubuntu 16.04.01) according to the guide from:  

https://github.com/CheckPointSW/cpAnsible

 

I installed the Ansible 2.0.0.2 from Ubuntu repository.

 

I am getting following error.

TASK [login] *******************************************************************

task path: /home/yevgeniy/ansible/cpx_add_host.yml:4

fatal: [127.0.0.1]: FAILED! => {"failed": true, "msg": "ERROR! error importing module in /usr/share/my_modules/check_point_mgmt/check_point_mgmt.py, expecting format like 'from ansible.module_utils.basic import *'"}

 

The error comes from:

yevgeniy@kubuntu-desktop:/usr/share/my_modules/check_point_mgmt$ pwd

/usr/share/my_modules/check_point_mgmt

yevgeniy@kubuntu-desktop:/usr/share/my_modules/check_point_mgmt$ ls -al

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10115 Sep 13 17:31 check_point_mgmt.py

cat check_point_mgmt.py

#!/usr/bin/python

import ast

import json

import sys

from ansible.module_utils.basic import AnsibleModule

 

The file and object are exist:

yevgeniy@kubuntu-desktop:/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages$ pwd

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages

yevgeniy@kubuntu-desktop:/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages$

yevgeniy@kubuntu-desktop:/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages$ cat ansible/module_utils/basic.py | grep AnsibleModule

class AnsibleModule(object):

 

 

Below is the configuration and playbook.

I would very appreciate your feedback.

Re: cpAnsible installation on Ubuntu 16.04 

Yevgeniy,

I install Ansible on Ubuntu 16.04 quite a lot so i created this script to install Ansible 2.6.X and also download and place the Check Point Ansible libs in the proper locations. If you run this on an existing installation it will upgrade Ansible to 2.6.X version. Maybe this will help you out!

#Add Updated Ansible Repo
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:ansible/ansible
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y ansible python-pip

#Clone Check Point Ansible libs
git clone --recursive https://github.com/CheckPoint-APIs-Team/cpAnsible
sudo cp -r cpAnsible/check_point_mgmt/ /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ansible/
sudo cp -r cpAnsible/check_point_mgmt/cp_mgmt_api_python_sdk/ /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/

sudo mkdir -p $HOME/.ansible/plugins/modules
sudo cp -r cpAnsible/check_point_mgmt/ $HOME/.ansible/plugins/modules/

Re: cpAnsible installation on Ubuntu 16.04 

Hello Joe, 

thanks for your instructions I managed to start ansible to work for me with the Multi-Domain Management in my lab. Smiley Happy 

According to your recommendations, 

- I updated repository and ansible. 

- Then I copied the check_point_mgmt/ to /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ansible/. 

It was in /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ before. 

Thanks a lot!

Re: cpAnsible installation on Ubuntu 16.04 

For lab purpose I downloaded the image from turnkey hub, save me the hassle with linux, ansible and python installation. Works fine for me.
