Follow these steps @Ruth:

  • Generate ssh key

  • Check the ip of your node using ifconfig

  • copy public key of Ansible server to its nodes. Use the command below:

ssh-copy-id -i root@<ip address of your node machine>
  • use any editor to write your inventory or specify the IP addresses of your nodes grouped under ‘test-servers’

vi /etc/ansible/hosts
  • Check the IP of your host
cat /etc/ansible/hosts

And you're done!
