Failed to ssh deployed VM with correct username/password


When you failed to ssh deployed VM with correct username/password, the returned message are like:

Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic)


The ssh is denied because password authentication in sshd is disabled.


In the /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg file of the source image, the ssh_pwauth config key determines whether or not sshd will be configured to accept password authentication. Setting ssh_pwauth to 1 will enable password auth, which means that PasswordAuthentication config key in /etc/ssh/sshd_config will be set to yes. Setting to 0 will disable password auth, the PasswordAuthentication config key will be set to no. And the literal string unchanged will leave sshd unchanged.

Configure the /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg file when you create an image. See "Install and configure cloud-init"
