Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Return ssh publickeys in listSSHKeyPairs
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2013 14:35:43 GMT
Great thanks for the feedback. Will get this applied at the weekend.

Just out of interest. In an account we have users. Those users have access
to all the VMs via the Cloudstack Management interface. However they don't
necessarily have access to the VMs(i.e. They do not know its password or
their public key is not contained within the machines authorized_keys).

Is there any way to add multiple SSH Public keys to a VM without powering
it down?

Basically, I want a way for all users of an account to share access to all
VMs owned by that account without having to manually store
passwords/private-ssh-keys on a separate system. Or by being able to inject
a SSH key or password reset without changing the power state of the VM.
