root@host:~# cd debian-ansible-docker/
root@host:~# docker build -t debian-ansible-slave debian-ansible-slave/

Generate keypair for SSH login from ansible-master to ansible-slave

root@host:~# mkdir /root/ansible-ssh-key/ && ssh-keygen -N '' -f /root/ansible-ssh-key/key

Spawn ansible slave systems by running the following command multiple times

docker run -d -e "PUBLICKEY=cat /root/ansible-ssh-key/" debian-ansible-slave
