Hello, I'd like to install rke2 using ansible. How can I create a token to be used by ansible playbooks? Does it have to follow some rules, or a simple string is enough?

I have used this at some point in past:
echo $RANDOM | sha512sum | head -c 128; echo
Then insert it in the config.yaml You can change 128 to 64 if you don't fancy the long token...
Assuming this is what you are asking - or maybe I misunderstood

I often use the
apg
tool (stands for Automatic Password Generator) as I think it's in Debian/Ubuntu & RHEL repos and it gives you the fine grained control you may want for choosing.
