I am unable to execute following command from shell module neither through playbook. It could be any command at the run time. While reading found $,%
need the escape string. Tried but not working. Is there any way/module
through which i can run any command on the remote host and no need to
explicitly define any escape string.


netstat -tanpu | awk '{{print $5}}' | sort -n | uniq -cd | sort -n | awk
'$1 > 3{{printf ("%5s\t%s\n", $1, $2)}}'

With shell module:

/usr/bin/ansible remote_host -m shell -a 'netstat -tanpu | awk '{{print
$5}}' | sort -n | uniq -cd | sort -n | awk '$1 > 3{{printf ("%5s\t%s\n",
$1, $2)}}''
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('


With playbook.

- hosts: "{{ip}}"
  gather_facts: no
  remote_user: remote
  connection: local

  tasks:
   - name: Running command
shell: netstat -tanpu | awk '{{print $5}}' | sort -n | uniq -cd | sort
-n | awk '$1 > 3{{printf ("%5s\t%s\n", $1, $2)}}'

fatal: [192.168.4.7] => Failed to template netstat -tanpu | awk '{{print $5}}' | sort -n | uniq -cd | sort -n | awk '$1 > 3{{printf ("%5s\t%s\n", $1, $2)}}': template error while templating string: unexpected char u'$' at

Ansible thinks {{ }} is a template, you need to just use { }, so this should work:

- name: Running command
shell: netstat -tanpu | awk '{print $5}' | sort -n | uniq -cd | sort -n | awk '$1 > 3{printf ("%5s\t%s\n",$1, $2)}'
