[RHV] Is it possible to restrict root login on RHV hypervisor and RHV manager?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • ssh using root user is enabled by default on RHVH/RHEL host, Some corporate IT policies prohibit the usage of root ssh so is it possible to disable it?

  • As per the RHV installation documentation, Enabling ssh root login on RHEL Host is prerequisite. Are there any settings/setup which can bypass that ?
