The Ansible user is used to remotely execute various deployment tasks into cluster nodes.

User Name

Set the ansible_user variable into all.yaml global configuration file.

Use the username value defined into OS General Settings server installation, to set the ansible_user variable.

User Password

Encrypt the ansible_password variable with ansible-vault and set the encrypted value into all.yaml global configuration file.


Generate the SSH key, which will be copied into each cluster node, while running the Provisioning playbook:

ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C '[email protected]'
The Provisioning playbook will look for the generated SSH key, into default /Users/username/.ssh location.

For a different storage location, update the cluster_vars.ssh.authorized_key value into Cluster role main.yaml configuration file.
