Panos_admpwd Hangs

L0 Member

Hi there, I have a super basic Ansible script that is meant to just change the admin password using SSH.

 

---
- name: change admin password for newly deployed Palo Alto firewall
  hosts: firewall
  collections:
    - paloaltonetworks.panos
  gather_facts: no
  
  tasks:
    - name: Change admin password using SSH
      panos_admpwd:
        ip_address: '{{ provider.ip_address }}'
        newpassword: '{{ provider.new_password }}'
        key_filename: '{{ ansible_ssh_private_key_file }}'
      register: result
      until: not result|failed
      retries: 10
      delay: 30

    - name: panos commit
      panos_commit_firewall:
        provider: '{{ provider }}'

 

and for whatever reason, the task just hangs when establishing the connection.

 

TASK [Change admin password using SSH] **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
task path: /home/dapper/Morannon/Ansible/morannon.yml:9
<xx.xxx.xx.xxx> ESTABLISH SSH CONNECTION FOR USER: admin
<xx.xxx.xx.xxx> SSH: EXEC ssh -vvv -C -o ControlMaster=auto -o ControlPersist=60s -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o 'IdentityFile="ssh.key"' -o KbdInteractiveAuthentication=no -o PreferredAuthentications=gssapi-with-mic,gssapi-keyex,hostbased,publickey -o PasswordAuthentication=no -o 'User="admin"' -o ConnectTimeout=10 -o ControlPath=/home/dapper/.ansible/cp/52255bf5c1 xxx.xxx.xx.xxx '/bin/sh -c '"'"'echo ~admin && sleep 0'"'"''

 

I did find an issue on the GitHub where this exact thing was happening, but it was supposedly fixed.

This is my ansible version:

 

ansible [core 2.11.5] 
  config file = /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
  configured module search path = ['/home/dapper/.ansible/plugins/modules', '/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules']
  ansible python module location = /home/dapper/.local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/ansible
  ansible collection location = /home/dapper/.ansible/collections:/usr/share/ansible/collections
  executable location = /home/dapper/.local/bin/ansible
  python version = 3.8.0 (default, Feb 25 2021, 22:10:10) [GCC 8.4.0]
  jinja version = 3.0.1
  libyaml = True

Per the reply from MR on https://github.com/PaloAltoNetworks/pan-os-ansible/discussions/272, connection should be local. There is a repo of example playbooks here that might be useful for you: https://github.com/PaloAltoNetworks/ansible-playbooks
