Your subject line has a question in it, but the body does not. Is your question "Where are scripts executed?" If that is your question then yes, you're correct, it should be the home directory of the user you logged into the remote server with. You can see by doing something like
ansible servera -m shell -a "ls"-u username This will print the contents of the working directory when a user logs in. Try it with the become options to see what the result is. You can use an absolute path to call a script. Or use the "chdir" option for shell, something like --- - hosts: collector become: true become_method: su become_user: root tasks: - name: stop eum shell: bin/eum.sh stop args: chdir: /opt/AppDynamics/EUEM/eum-processor/ should guarantee that you're in the correct location.
