#ansible & #docker – Failed to connect to new control master

I’ve been using ansible playbooks on containers. After I’ve started to use data-only containers. I’ve got the following message.

I’ve got the following message:

Failed to connect to the host via ssh: Control socket connect(/home/dev/.ansible/cp/ansible-ssh-10.88.157.131-22-root): Connection refused\r\nFailed to connect to new control master\r\n

Digging around, I could find the following post: “Multiplex/shared SSH connections not connecting: “Control socket connect Connection refused. Failed to connect to new control master”

Base on that info, I’ve just need to Change the ControlPath to shared memory. Seems the filesystem I am using won’t work well with unix socket. Maybe because I am using a volume from my data-only container (overlayfs).

Base on the details below, I am using my ControlPath at $HOME folder.

TASK [bridges : Pull facts on hypervisor] **************************************

fatal: [localhost]: UNREACHABLE! => {
    "changed": false,
    "msg": "Failed to connect to the host via ssh: Control socket connect(/home/dev/.ansible/cp/ansible-ssh-10.88.157.131-22-root): Connection refused\r\nFailed to connect to new control master\r\n",
    "unreachable": true
}

Then, I set a different path on my ansible.cfg file at my playbook folder with the following content:

[defaults]
host_key_checking=false
log_path = /var/log/ansible/ansible-packet-nuagevns.log
remote_tmp = /tmp/.ansible-${USER}/tmp

[ssh_connection]
ssh_args = -C -o ControlMaster=auto -o ControlPersist=60s
control_path = /dev/shm/cp%%h-%%p-%%r

And now It’s working as you can appreciate on the following:
