what ansible version you using, check from the Linux first you able to connect normally using SSH command to confirm is the device reachable and working.

I used below example to test single device when i was testing my Lab it works as expected : (what kind of router and model you using, do you see any logs on the router while ansible connecting time ?)

@dheerajoz30  based on the error you see, i would indicate that the parents parameter is not supported by the ios_config module. The parameter is used to specify the parent configuration section where the changes should be applied. From what i recall, the ios_config module only supports applying changes to the global configuration section. https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/collections/cisco/ios/ios_config_module.html

To fix this issue, you can remove the parents parameter from the task. The changes should then be applied to the global configuration section, which should resolve error issue you see.

Hope this helps.

@dheerajoz30  also check your inventory, it should look something like this:

routers:
  hosts:
    router1.xyz.com:
    router2.xyz.com:
  vars:
      ansible_connection: ansible.netcommon.network_cli
      ansible_network_os: cisco.ios.ios
