Description of problem: When provisioning a cloudforms appliance using RHOS the ssh key pair function does not seem to work correctly, you can add the key pair but it still requires a user and password when connecting to the appliance, it seems to be ignoring the pub/private keys.

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to RHOS
2. Launch new CFME instance
3. fill out wizard and add key pair

Actual results: key pair does not work

Expected results: login using key pair

I have done a little research and think you need to specify the user name as: "cloud-user"

ssh -i <your key file>.key cloud-user@<ipaddr>

Please let me know if that works.

I created a new instance with my key pair and tested, but still no joy connecting with cloud-user, still requires a password from me.

Assigning to add test case

I have confirmed the fix for the cloud-init BZ 1300410 [1] also resolves this issue. Moving to post.

Comment 6 Joe Vlcek 2016-02-23 12:55:32 EST
The username I was able to use successfully with my ssh keypair is "root"

ssh -i <your key file>.key root@<ipaddr>
