Thank you smaffulli.

i found the issue. python was not installed in any of the container. so i made change in container_create.yml as below and it work fine for me .

Path : os-ansible-deployment-kilo\playbooks\roles\lxc_container_create\tasks\container_create.yml

at line 284 :

before : apt-get -y install python2.7

After : apt-get -y install python

after this it worked for me

i am not sure is it bug or not but it worked form me once i changed.

Ansible error message seems to give a hint of what may be wrong

 /bin/sh: 1: /usr/bin/python: not found

If python is installed on host then update your question.
