Is "[WARNING]: Host file not found: /etc/ansible/hosts" a serious error?

Or can one safely ignore it during setup. U see that numerous users have encountered it during their setup but never got assurance whether or not it would become a problem.

I encounter it everytime I setup ERPNext, but ansible is just a little too complicated for me to configure. I’ve had fairly successful setups, that almost inevitably result in an issue I cannot workaround.

So I think it’d be helpful if we put this little screamer to rest.

Usually, warnings are not serious issues.

From what I gather, ansible expects a default hosts file, which is not present, because we are running this locally.

Thank you for the reassurance.
