action #43703

Updated by dheidler over 5 years ago

## Motivation 

 This is a change needed in order to be able to update to openssh 7.9, based on sr 

 The submit request changes the default configuration of openssh for user root to only permit keybased auth, no longer password auth (as per upstream default). 

 This breaks the assumptions done in our openQA tests, where at least two tests rely on root/password combo for ssh. 

 ## Suggestions 

 * A member from QSF-u should be test module maintainer and update the test module 

 The identified tests, so far, are: 

 * sshxterm 
 * rsync 
 * sshfs 

 both should switch the logic to be root/keybased auth. As an addition for completion, a test user/password might be added in plus
