comment How to set up an automatic failover reverse proxy for two identical Icecast master servers?
Just implemented and it works awesome, thanks for the help! A simple <fallback-mount>/boplive2</fallback-mount> in the frontend icecast and another VM's mpd.conf set up with mount "boplive2" to feed it. Really smooth transitioning – even when the source VMs are on different continents. Yeah, we'll look into 3rd failover level too, but more likely it's gonna be something on the listener's machine (the project is not for public radio, but in-store music systems).

Yes, the Icecast server is on the same VM that downloads playlists & music via Python scripts, forwards it to mpd which outputs to Icecast. I was trying to put a simpler nginx-only VM in front of that whole thing cloned in case any of the services crashed (we had cases where icecast would not come back up after a maintenance reboot due to errors for example). But perhaps just isolating Icecast in its own VM in front of two VMs containing all the custom code (more frequently updated) and setting a fallback-mount would work.

comment ssh-copy-id in one line with password, possible?
Almost worked for me. Had to do this for the ssh key: authorized_key: user={{ ansible_user_id }} key="{{ lookup('file', '~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub') }}"

comment What is the preferred method to restart networking in Ubuntu and Debian
Screen won't really help if you shut down networking on a remote server. In this case you would have to go search for some sort of direct access, which isn't always convenient.
