Description A.J. Werkman 2013-05-28 07:32:22 EDT
Description of problem:
When supplying the anaconda boot option 'sshd' on the commandline I would expect to be able to ssh into the system during installation. However on the client I get 'port 22: Connection refused'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda 19.30-1

How reproducible:
Everytime I tried

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Fedora setup and supply the bootline option 'sshd' as describe in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda_Boot_Options?rd=Anaconda/Options
2. From a ssh client try to login using ssh

Actual results:
Message is shown 'port 22: Connection refused'

Expected results:
Able to log into the installing system.

Additional info:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda_Boot_Options?rd=Anaconda/Options describes:

    Starts up sshd during system installation. You can then ssh in while the installation progresses to debug or monitor. Passwords are controlled via the kickstart sshpw command. By default, the root account has a blank password, so if the sshd option is specified, anyone can login as root and have full access to the machine during installation.

Sorry about that, the docs are in the process of being rewritten. A draft is here:


Use inst.sshd to start the sshd server.
