Why are Sliced Jobs Distributed Unevenly When Executing Against Provided Limit in Ansible Tower ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


When using the job slicing feature & evaluating the job against provided limits in a Job Template. The jobs are distributed unevenly & if hosts listed in limit did not match any host, the slice jobs fails with ERROR! Specified hosts and/or --limit does not match any hosts causing the overall job to fail.
