Ansible : Invalid/incorrect password: Permission denied, please try again

Trying to work with ansible and got the below error

The inventory having the following line :-

target1 ansible_host=192.168.204.129  ansible_ssh_pass=password

When trying to run a test like the below :-

osama@ansible-controller:~/ansible_test$ ansible target1 -m ping -i /home/osama/ansible_test/inventory.txt

The following error appeared :-

target1 | UNREACHABLE! => {

    "changed": false,

    "msg": "Invalid/incorrect password: Permission denied, please try again.",

    "unreachable": true

}

To solve this error you need to set the right username and password like the following, inside the inventory add the following :-

target1 ansible_host=192.168.204.129  ansible_ssh_user=osboxes aniansible_ssh_pass=password

Run the test again by :-

osama@ansible-controller:~/ansible_test$ ansible target1 -m ping -i /home/osama/ansible_test/inventory.txt  --ask-pass

The output will be

target1 | SUCCESS => {

    "ansible_facts": {

        "discovered_interpreter_python": "/usr/bin/python3"

    },

    "changed": false,

    "ping": "pong"
