Ansible runner, receptor and container images

I am playing with ansible-runner and receptor and was wondering how is the container image passed to the remote node

ansible-runner transmit ./EE --playbook site.yml --container-image hci-ee | receptorctl --socket /var/run/receptor.sock work submit -f --node receptor -p - ansible-runner | ansible-runner process /tmp/

but on the remove system no pods

podman images

Is thier a step im missing or is their some other magic at work here


I am re-posting my comment on the Matrix as this may be helpful for some users in the future.

You should place ./EE/env/settings and add process_isolation: true to it. Without this configuration, worker process invokes ansible-playbook directly on remote node instead of using container.

Maybe my repository and blog can help you to understand what AWX, Ansible Runner, and Receptor do for Job execution:


Hi @aheath1992! It looks like the post might be solved - could you check to see if the response by @kurokobo worked for you?

If so, it would be super helpful if you could click the :heavy_check_mark: on their post to accept the solution - it recognises the input of others, helps our volunteers find new issues to answer, and keeps the forum nice and tidy.
