RHEL7 RC minimal install openssh broken by default?

Latest response

I'm spinning up RHEL 7 RC for the first time on a vmware VM as a manual minimal installation.

I was hoping to do the base build, start up openssh-server, then do everything else from SSH. It looks like openssh-server is broken by default in the minimal installation though:

sytemctl status openssh-server.service
Loaded: not-found (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)

systemctl start openssh-server.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit openssh-server.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

Anyone else seeing this?


There is definitely something wonky with the initial SSH install. I had one install start up with SSH installed, but the initial key files were generated with the wrong ower/group & permissions, so sshd refused to load the keys. Not reported yet because I haven't reproduced it (only happened on 1 of 2 installs).
