Description of problem:
Customer security policy specifies that root access be disabled in the SSH configuration, so enabling root SSH access between the servers for gdeploy will present a problem for them in the long term.
To my knowledge gdeploy does not currently support a method to allow SSH connections as a non-root user.
Customer is requesting a way to use a non-root ssh account with gdeploy. ACE has been raised for this case and customer's expectation is to have this feature available in 3-6 months.
Not sure how practical this expectation is but I have opened this BZ so that there can be a discussion on the feasibility of implementing this feature.
gdeploy is deprecated in favour of gluster-ansible. We will not be adding any more new features.
