ansible SSH connection fail

Question:

I’m trying to run ansible role on multiple servers, but i get an error:

fatal: [192.168.0.10]: UNREACHABLE! => {“changed”: false, “msg”:
“Failed to connect to the host via ssh.”, “unreachable”: true}

My /etc/ansible/hosts file looks like this:

I have no idea what’s going on – everything looks fine – I can login via SSH, but ansible ping returns the same error.

The log from verbose execution:

<192.168.0.10> ESTABLISH SSH CONNECTION FOR USER: user <192.168.0.10>
SSH: EXEC ssh -C -vvv -o ControlMaster=auto -o ControlPersist=60s -o

” &&
echo “echo
$HOME/.ansible/tmp/ansible-tmp-1463151813.31-156630225033829

)'”‘””

Can you help me somehow? If I have to use ansible in local mode (-c local), then it’s useless.

I’ve tried to delete ansible_sudo_pass and ansible_ssh_user, but it did’nt help.

Answer:

You need to change the ansible_ssh_pass as well or ssh key, for example I am using this in my inventory file:

After that I can connect to the remote host:

With the following result:

Hope that help you.

Note: ansible_ssh_pass & ansible_ssh_user don’t work in the latest version of Ansible. It has changed to ansible_user & ansible_pass
