RHEL 5.2, Anaconda Kickstart and sshd

Latest response

Hi, I am currently using RHEL 5.2.


Is there an option that I can enable sshd when kickstarting my system?


I tried specifying sshpw in my Kickstart file but it seems like Anaconda is treating it as an unknown option.  Is sshpw option only available in RHEL 6?


I would like to do a secure remote login to a kickstarting machine to retrieve files and executing some Python scripts.  Is sshd available?  If not, any other recommendation or suggestion?


Thanks in advance

This option is only for rhel6 not for rhel5. Which you can also find at http://www.linux-archive.org/ubuntu-masters-universe/508846-about-sshd-sshpw-rhel5.html


Thank you for your reply.


Do you know if there's any other option that I can do remote login while kickstarting a system?
