Using Ansible to Align Passwords on Servers

The Problem: A group of servers get their passwords updated every 3 months with a new shared password. The servers passwords are then inconsistently updated leaving a group of servers with one of several possible user passwords. The Goal: Use Ansible to attempt to login to each server using each of the possible passwords to find the correct one and log it. The final step of the playbook will have Ansible logging into each server using the found to be correct password and updating each server to a new shared password.
