Multiple Duo prompts with Ansible


#1

I have an issue with running Ansible commands on DUO implemented RHEL servers. When I run a command from my Ansible control node to a host, I have to hit the DUO “Approve” button on my iPhone Duo app 5 times before I see the output. I don’t have this issue if I simply SSH to the host. I can SSH to a host with only a single “Approve”.

Example command:

ansible -m command -a “uptime”

On the host server, the /var/log/messages file shows this output.

Does anyone else have this issue and, if so, what is the fix? Thanks!
