ansible ssh permission denied

ssh permission denied (publickey)
ansible failed to connect to the host via ssh.'', unreachable
permission denied (publickey,password)
ansible ssh password
ansible permission denied
make sure this host can be reached over ssh permission denied
ansible-playbook ssh password
permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)

I'm generated ssh key, and copy it to remote server. When I try to ssh to that server everything works fine:

ssh user@ip_address

User is not a root. If I try to ssh throw ansible:

ansible-playbook -i hosts playbook.yml

with ansible playbook:

---
- hosts: web
  remote_user: user
  tasks:
    - name: test connection
      ping:

and hosts file:

[web]
192.168.0.103

I got error:

...
Permission denied (publickey,password)

What's the problem?


Ansible is using different key compared to what you are using to connect to that 'web' machine.

You can explicitly configure ansible to use a specific private key by

private_key_file=/path/to/key_rsa

as mentioned in the docs Make sure that you authorize that key which ansible uses, to the remote user in remote machine with ssh-copy-id -i /path/to/key_rsa.pub user@webmachine_ip_address

Failed to connect to the host via ssh: Permission denied , ssh ubuntu@35.165.79.66 connection will establish. but ansible command not able to complete. thumbs up 3. If you get SSH Error: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive) Set SELinux to Permissive mode on linux machine. By Default it will be in enabled mode. command to set SELinux in permissive mode is $setenforce 0


In my case I got similar error while running ansible playbook when host changed it's fingerprint. I found this, trying to establish ssh connection from command line. So, after running ssh-keygen -f "/root/.ssh/known_hosts" -R my_ip this problem was solved.

Hi Run the play as below. by default ansible plays using root. ansible-playbook -i hosts playbook.yml -u user If you still get the error, run below and paste the out-put here. ansible-playbook -i hosts playbook.yml -u user -vvv
