AWX Ansible tower_cli.exceptions.TowerCLIError: failed to parse some of the extra variables

Estoy ejecutando un playbook de Ansible 1 que utiliza tower-cli 2 para interactuar con un servidor AWX 3 y me encontré varios minutos intentando corregir este error:

TASK [debug] *******************************************************************************

PLAY RECAP **********************************************************************************
localhost                  : ok=1    changed=0    unreachable=0    failed=1

El problema es con el formato del archivo ~/.tower_cli.cfg y es necesario corregir lo siguiente:

Ejemplo:

# cat ~/.tower_cli.cfg
  [general]              <--- ERROR delete line!
  host=192.168.1.100     <--- ERROR add http://hostname:port
  password = xxxxxxxxxxx <--- ERROR trim whitespaces!
  username=admin
  verify_ssl=false
