Playbook executed fine but output not as expected

0 votes

I have the following yaml file:

- hosts: all
  gather_facts: yes
  connection: local
    - name: Check the date on the server.
      action: command touch /opt/b
    - name: cat the Content
      action: command cat /opt/b

It gets executed without any errors but it's supposed to create a file but it hasn't.

Hey @Nisha, you've mentioned this line on your playbook:

connection: local

It means this is getting executed in your local system and hence the file created must be in your local system.

Remove that line and try again.
