2.1.2 Preparing Each Ceph Node

Install NTP.
NTP already installed.

Install SSH server.
OpenSSH already installed and running.

Add a ceph user.
ses01:~ # useradd -m ceph
useradd: user 'ceph' already exists


6. On the admin node, become the ceph user,
ses01:~ # su - ceph
This account is currently not available.

The user ceph exists, but with login disabled and nologin shell set.
Solution: run YAST2, go to "User and Group Management", filter system users, edit user "ceph", remove "Disable User login" mark and set login shell to /bin/bash.

Copy the key to each Ceph node:
ceph@ses01:~> ssh-copy-id ceph@172.18.66.16
The authenticity of host '172.18.66.16 (172.18.66.16)' can't be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is 04:55:4b:a6:42:b4:0f:db:86:b9:4b:3b:c0:ab:5e:5f [MD5].
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: attempting to log in with the new key(s), to filter out any that are already installed
/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: 1 key(s) remain to be installed -- if you are prompted now it is to install the new keys

How to resolve that in better way, and why this is appeared if everything installed just out of the box?
