Dear Community , 

Please help me I am using rhel 9.0 and doing practice ex294 v9 exam.

Same playbook works fine with ansible-playbook command while aways through error using ansible-navigator. Please help to fix here is details of my configurations.

[devops@controller ansible]$ ansible --version
ansible [core 2.14.9]
config file = /home/devops/ansible/ansible.cfg
configured module search path = ['/home/devops/.ansible/plugins/modules', '/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules']
ansible python module location = /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/ansible
ansible collection location = /home/devops/ansible/collections:/home/devops/ansible/usr/share/ansible/collections
executable location = /usr/bin/ansible
python version = 3.9.10 (main, Feb 9 2022, 00:00:00) [GCC 11.2.1 20220127 (Red Hat 11.2.1-9)] (/usr/bin/python3)
jinja version = 3.1.2
libyaml = True
[devops@controller ansible]$ ansible-navigator --version
ansible-navigator 2.1.0
[devops@controller ansible]$ cat ansible-navigator.yml

Playbook

- name: get time from ntp servers
hosts: all
become: true
remote_user: devops
vars:
   timesync_ntp_servers:
      - hostname: 172.16.24.20
        iburst: true

 - rhel-system-roles.timesync

=====================================

[devops@controller ansible]$ ansible-playbook time.yml --syntax-check

playbook: time.yml

[devops@controller ansible]$ ansible-navigator run time.yml -m stdout --syntax-check
ERROR! the role 'rhel-system-roles.timesync' was not found in /home/devops/ansible/roles:/home/devops/ansible/roles:/usr/share/ansible/roles:/home/devops/ansible

The error appears to be in '/home/devops/ansible/time.yml': line 11, column 7, but may
be elsewhere in the file depending on the exact syntax problem.

The offending line appears to be:

roles:
- rhel-system-roles.timesync
^ here
Please review the log for errors.

Hello @abbashussain !
Refer this  blog : https://www.redhat.com/en/blog/introduction-rhel-system-roles 

I was able to reproduce the error :

and then resolved it using the correct role name :

I installed the roles using : ansible-galaxy collection install -p collections/ redhat-rhel_system_roles-1.19.3.tar.gz
