ERROR! couldn't resolve module/action . . . for panos_address_object, yet other modules are found

L0 Member

I am working with ansible 2.9.6 on Ubuntu 20.04 and the PAN-OS Ansible Collection loaded via ansible-galaxy collection install . . . and as nearly as I can tell that version is 2.5. I have play books that call panos_security_rule, panos_nat_rule, and panos_commit_push. These -- and panos_address_object -- are all located in "~/.ansible/collections/ansible_collections/paloaltonetworks/panos/plugins/modules". Only calls to panos_address_object throw the "couldn't resolve module/action" error. 


I am NOT running in a container. Is this an error that actually indicates some kind of syntax error that has nothing to do with the module location?


- name: Add flog service group
     ip_address: "{{ inventory_hostname }}"  
     password: "{{ creds.password }}"
     username: "{{ creds.username }}"
     name: 'flog-fe'
     address_type: 'ip-range'
     value: ''
     tag: ['flog']

Read this as the address object is added in 2.8 and you may need to install it seperatly than the collection. Also the object uses provider: '{{ provider }}' and other parameters so read carefully.



If you think that this will work on 2.5 why don't you install docker and use a container with ansible 2.5 to see if the galaxy collection will work with it?



If there is no container with ansible 2.5 and you are not good with writting dockerfiles just start a basic conteiner with ubuntu base image, enter it, install the needed things and use docker commit to create your new image (just to have backup if the container has issues):
