[RFE] Reinstall (Install Host) dialog should have a way to work with new host SSHd key
Last modified: 2018-01-04 04:49:05 EST
Description of problem:
Reinstall (Install Host) dialog could have a SSH fetch fingerprint action. Why? When doing EL6 to EL7 migration we keep the host registered inside engine and we say to users to edit hosts ssh fingerprint via Edit Host and then to do Reinstall. IMO SSH fingerprint "update" could be inside Reinstall dialog as well, less action for users.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a host in maintenance
2. regenerate host's ssh keys
3. click Reinstall
Host dell-r210ii-04 installation failed. Invalid fingerprint SHA256:Sw7N6i7tICXiCuhO1ac3tD0+QFVjc7YbSSXLDDnTJCE, expected SHA256:eeaqjdQ/52/jH2pZDBN1/B92V+mJT5KH6F/Gf4SjK7o.
because we did not say anything to forget old SSH fingerprint and there's no way to fetch new ssh fingerprint inside Reinstall dialog.
- either have a way to "update" ssh fingerprint of a host inside Reinstall
- when doing Reinstall and engine could not ssh to host because invalid
fingerprint, there could be a popup to override old fingerprint and use new
