Today I was thinking about passing the host IP on the ansible-playbook I’m going to run to automate something. As per the documentation, it says
–i hostname in a comma separated input will work fine.
I was trying to give the IP like
ansible-playbook playbook.yml -i 18.104.22.168 in the playbook command line and it was not working, then I figured out that we need to add a comma to the IP we specified even it is a single IP that I’m going to run playbook on.
So, the solution was to add a comma (,) just after the IP
ansible-playbook playbook.yml -i 22.214.171.124, –check
Hope this helps 🙂
