Ansible Hosts File
The Ansible Inventory or Hosts file is where Ansible stores all the connectivity for all the hosts you want to manage with Ansible.
The format is a text file in the following format
Note: The name of your device must be resolvable in DNS, if it is not you will have to add the line ansible-host-<ip address> to each entry
You can also just put the IP address, but this makes things confusing when referencing IP's in playbooks, it's much easier to do it by names
