sshdto provide the encrypted connection required between the systems and Red Hat Network. This may be especially desirable if you already have
sshdrunning. To configure the daemon for monitoring use:
- Ensure the SSH package is installed on the systems to be monitored:
rpm -qi openssh-server
- Identify the user to be associated with the daemon. This can be any user available on the system, as long as the required SSH key can be put in the user's
- Install the SSH public key on all client systems to be monitored, as described in Section 6.2.3, “Installing the SSH key”.
- Start the
sshdon all client systems using the command:
service sshd start
- When adding probes requiring the daemon, insert the values derived from steps 2 and 3 in the RHNMD User and RHNMD Port fields.
