RSA key save Error Resolution in Ansible

If you are also struggling while running ansible-plabook for new hosts and getting error like following, then you have two options. Either connect to each host one by one to save the RSA keys of that host to your ansible server or you can disable host key checking in ansible configuration file. Here is the way to do it

Edit/create either of the following files

 /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg or ~/.ansible.cfg

and add the following to the file.

host_key_checking = False

Error Message before disabling host key checking

fatal: [ios-xe-02]: FAILED! => {"ansible_facts": {"discovered_interpreter_python": "/usr/libexec/platform-python"}, "changed": false, "msg": "paramiko: The authenticity of host '[ios-xe-02]:8181' can't be established.\nThe ssh-rsa key fingerprint is b'b7e974a8cbf96d464f7be3e12a86d265'."}
