Cumulus Ansible module and OSX

I'm trying to use the Ansible module on my MBP running OSX but it seems that Cumulus module is trying to call them from /usr/cumulus/bin which does not exist:

fatal: [test1]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "cmd": "/usr/cumulus/bin/cl-license", "failed": true, "invocation": {"module_args": {"force": false, "src": "/tmp/cumulus.lic"}, "module_name": "cl_license"}, "msg": "[Errno 2] No such file or directory", "rc": 2}

is copying the library directory of the module to /usr/cumulus/bin needed or did I miss a PATH variable somewhere in the module setup ?

Ok seems this path is hardcoded:

Could get a change to choose where to install these as it seems that since El-Capitan /usr is not accessible for sudo users except via disabling System Integrity Protection.

Isn't it trying to run the command on the switch? Is the missing file /tmp/cumulus.lic - is that in place (on the switch)?
Is is.
Error is on /usr/cumulus/bin which can't be populated on OSX due to System Integrity Protection.
But the ansible-galaxy install doesn't trigger any error at the setup.

What is the play you are trying to run? It looks like you are trying to use the cumulus license module against your OSX device instead of a physical switch?
Hi pete,

running the module against a vx cumulus for testing the playbooks.
all my playbooks is fine except when using the cumulus module.

aha! in Cumulus Vx there is no license, so the cl-license binary does not exist. You will see similar errors for ACLs.

Are you able to use the interfaces module successfully?

As a workaround it may be worth it to create a stub Bash script on your Vx node that simply returns true.
ok, will have a look.
Thanks for the feedback.
