Thanks for report, by default root account is locked on discovered nodes, user needs to enable ssh service manually and enter root password in the dialog. Then it makes into the system journal in clear text.
Updating the dependant 6.1 bug to 6.2 release.
This issue has been addressed in the following products:
Red Hat Satellite 6.3 for RHEL 7
