Description Ryan Howe 2017-11-22 20:14:49 UTC
Description of problem:
OpenShift Facts should not be called on all hosts when only a single group is being modified. 

Example when running  	redeploy-etcd-ca.yml or redeploy-etcd-certificates.yml openshift facts is gathered on all node hosts causing the installer to take to much unneed time to redploy etcd certs. 

Version-Release number of the following components:
└──> rpm -q openshift-ansible

└──> rpm -q ansible

└──> ansible --version
  config file = /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg
  configured module search path = [u'/home/cloud-user/.ansible/plugins/modules', u'/usr/share/ansible/plugins/modules']
  ansible python module location = /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ansible
  executable location = /usr/bin/ansible
  python version = 2.7.5 (default, May  3 2017, 07:55:04) [GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-14)]

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ ansible-playbook -i <inventory_file> \

Actual results:
Openshift facts gets call 2 times and ran on all nodes listed in hosts file

Expected results:
facts are only run on etcd hosts.

Thanks, we're aware of the problem and we'll make sure that we fix this as part of a larger effort to refactor playbooks into smaller components.

Verify this bug with openshift-ansible-3.10.0-0.46.0.git.0.85c3afd.el7.noarch.

Tried with the following several playbooks, no useless "Gathering Facts" or "Verify Requirements" tasks run on the nodes now.
