Re: [yast-devel] SSH key changes between stage 1 and stage 2
Hi Lukas, Martin,

I looked further into it and apparently I was mistaken, from stage 1 to
stage 2 what happens is a different type of key is used. In stage 1 it
uses dss and in stage 2 rsa, I think. So it warns me of this, but does
not block my access and adds the second key to known hosts.

Thank you both for helping :)

Hi, I noticed that after you're done with stage 1 and the systems
reboot, on stage 2 the SSH host key is different, which fires a warning
for the client who already recorded the key in it's know_hosts. I think
it would be interesting to avoid this issue by copying the keys from the
RAM in stage 1 to the disk after partitioning it and before installing
the system in it.

I wanted to hear any comments or suggestions from this list and check if
there's anything this behavior might affect for the worse.

Hi Arthur,

we already have some code which is supposed to address your issue:

You may want to file a bug (with y2logs).

Maybe the current ssh_settings_finish is in conflict with another
feature that copies SSH keys from a previous installation (if found on
