Subject RE: Creating an instance with ssh key pair
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2013 15:55:01 GMT
To deploy Vm using ssh key pairs  you will need to use a template that has SSH Key Gen Scripts
in it.
Only then you will be able to  ssh into the instance using ssh key.

Subject: Creating an instance with ssh key pair

Hello all,

If I create an instance providing ssh key pair while creation, and using a "normal template"
from the cloudstack setup, then will the SSH to vm using the keyPairFlieLocation always work?

Or the template which I am using for creating the instance has to be supporting SSH keys?
as explained in 5.2.1 section at

In short, Is the SSH using keyPairFileLocation -  template dependent or will it always work
if I provide ssh key pair while creating instance and use normal template?
