Making an SSH known_hosts File for Ansible

When I use Ansible, I often use SSH to download files from multiple locations. A recurring problem is Ansible hangs because it is waiting for someone to accept the host’s SSH finger print. The solution is to use ssh-key to make the known_hosts file. Here is the gist:

- name: Create a known hosts file for root
  shell: ssh-keyscan bitbucket.org >> /root/.ssh/known_hosts
