Short Description
Debian jessie with python and ssh service and key authentication.
Full Description

Debian jessie images for use with ansible. Containers of the type debian-ansible-slave are controlled by the container of the debian-ansible-master image.
The debian-ansible-master image will install the latest version of ansible available from git.




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




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

Start ansible master and connect to its terminal

docker run -e "PRIVATEKEY=cat /root/ansible-ssh-key/key" -it --name=debian-ansible-master debian-ansible-master

  • Ansible configuration can be modified in /root/.ansible.cfg within debian-ansible-master.
