    Solaris 11 AutoInstaller service profile for ssh to enable root logins?

    998401
      Hi Guys,

      I have got a basic system configuration profile that sets various things for my newly installed solaris 11 client.

      I was curious if anyone has a xml service configuration declaration I could use that configures the ssh service to allow remote root logins.

      I'd appreciate it.

          SSH configuration is not held in SMF but in /etc/ssh/sshd_config so it is not currently possible to use just an AI/SC manifest & profile to do what you ask.

          You need do deliver an updated /etc/ssh/sshd_config file with "PermitRootLogin yes", you will also need to have your SC profile setup so that the root account is not configured as a role. Y

          ou can deliver the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file either in an IPS package or you could do it with a custom [first boot script|http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E26502_01/html/E28980/firstboot-1.html#scrolltoc] or use a software_type of archive in your AI manifest to deliver it via cpio/tar.
