The reason for iterating repeatedly over several Ansible hosts with wildcards is to execute the same set of tasks or commands on multiple hosts simultaneously, which saves time and effort in managing groups of hosts. Wildcards allow you to specify a range of hosts or patterns that match a group of hosts based on certain criteria such as hostname, IP address, or network location. By using wildcards, you can easily target specific hosts within a larger group and automate repetitive tasks such as software installations, updates, or configuration changes. This helps to ensure consistency and reliability across your infrastructure while minimizing errors and reducing the risk of downtime.
