Running oVirt 4.4.

While setting up ovirt with ansible, I noticed that there is no parameter for setting the ssh port of the hosts (which is present if one adds an host on the GUI).

I tried adding the port as a part of the address, but that field is apparently evaluated as FQDN only.

I did circumvent this by adding FQDN-labeled sections with Port-definition ~/.ssh/config for ovirt-user on the engine-machine (not hosted), but this only got me a step further since the configuration in the engine still is without a port definition and falls back to 22 as a result.

Running the ansible playbook with -vvv I can see the following:

The ssh-key containing the fingerprint still has the port set as 22.

Any chance of getting the port added to the ansible ovirt.hosts module?
