Scenario - I am logged in to my Ansible server as “0lai” but would like to run 
my testPlay.yml as a different user (“ansible”) so I used the —user option. 
However, I don’t know user ansible’s password and would like to make it a 
passwordless run. I used thee —key-file option and provided the private key 
file of user ansible. This fails because user 0lai does not have read 
permission on user ansible’s private key. When i tried to give group read 
permission to ansible, it worked as expected. However, the private key 
shouldn’t be readable to anyone but the owner right?

Is there any way I can, as “0lai”, use “ansible” to connect to my managed nodes
