Ansible Playbook – How to pass hostname or IP in the Command line
03. September 2018 SysAdmin 0
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 126.96.36.199 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 188.8.131.52, –check
Hope this helps 🙂
