I manually installed Mirantis MOS8.0 Fuel Master on one of the bare machine server, after installation, I found that SSH listening IP was bound to the Fuel Master's admin IP, not the external IP. I have to ssh to other server on the same subnet of the public network and ssh to the MOS8.0 Fuel Master. I am thinking to change the listening IP manually, but see one comment that says the file is managaged by Puppet, I wonder if it is save to change it ? If not, what is the safe way to change ?

[...]# cat /etc/ssh/sshd_config

File is managed by Puppet

Port 22 ListenAddress <--- this is the admin IP, not the pubich IP. ...

I haven't gone hunting for which puppet module this is set in, but to answer your question directly: we've simply added a ListenAddress to our sshd_config, and it's been running fine forever. If you execute something that triggers that module (such as executing 'fuelmenu' and then saving), I imagine this will revert your settings. You might test this to verify. Chances are, you won't be doing anything that will overwrite this once you're config is set.

As of fuel9, there is a set up option in fuelmenu to configure ssh access.

Thanks for your information, I tried to manually change the listening IP, and did couple of master reboot, have not found any side effect yet. Still don't understand why by-default the listening IP was bound to the admin interface, not public interface though.
