RHEV: How do I disable ssh on RHEV hypervisors, without rebooting them

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • RHEV hypervisors are already connected to RHEVM and are currently running VMs. 

  • Need to disable ssh on each of the RHEV hypervisor.  When I run ovirt-config-setup on a RHEV hypervisor and go into the networking setup we get the following message:

This node has already registered with the RHEV Manager.
Networking can now only be configured via the RHEV Manager.
Networking setup ABORTED.

  • Would like to reconfigure SSH without rebooting the hypervisor.
