When running an ansible task (with a
script action), I'm getting this error message:
stderr: OpenSSH_6.0p1 Debian-4+deb7u2, OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug1: auto-mux: Trying existing master debug1: mux_client_request_session: master session id: 2 Shared connection to 10.0.2.222 closed.
Now, there are a bunch of tasks targeting the same host before this one, and they all work fine.I know it's the client, because the client is Debian; the thing being provisioned is Centos.
When I tried to look up this error message, I discovered (to my chagrin) that what I got is usually the first part of some longer message for some other problem. I tried adding
Host 10.0.2.222 ControlMaster no
to the beginning of my
/etc/ssh/ssh_config because of this question out of pure desperation, but it didn't work and I genuinely don't know what could have gone wrong; I don't know enough about how SSH works to even figure out what the most likely culprit would be.
