I have an Ansible inventory like the following:
[group1] host1.mydomain [maingroup:children] group1 [group2] host1.mydomain
I need to declare the same host on different groups since in this host there are two similar services collocated. In order to distinguish between the two services, I have created the following group vars:
group_vars/maingroup --- servicepath: /service1/path group_vars/group2 --- servicepath: /service2/path
When I first run a playbook with
hosts: maingroup, then the same playbook with
hosts: group2, it used the correct
servicepath variable value each time (first run=
/service1/path, second run=
However, in all subsequent retries when I run a playbook with
maingroup I got the value
I only managed to run the playbook with correct variables with
--extra-vars=@group_vars/group2 ansible-playbook parameter.
Could this be an Ansible bug or am I missing something?
