Subject Re: adding kvm host to cluster
Date Mon, 11 Aug 2014 21:50:26 GMT
I asked if it was necessary to always permit root access, and/or if it was okay to lock it
down once setup was complete. It was told to me, that it was okay to lock it down; as root
will only access it at initial setup. Therefore, with what you state; it seems to be necessary
to permit access all the time?

My research so far indicates that this host user has to be root, and the  
management server will ssh to port 22 of hypervisor hosts to do its magic.  

So my follow on question is: does management server require the ability  
to ssh to hypervisor host all the time, or just during initial setup phase  

Thanks for any clarifications,
