Symptoms

I want my servers to be more secure. Part of this involves disabling SSH access by root user and using private keys. Can I disable root login and use private keys after I added service node?

Resolution

Yes, it is possible to disable root login. Management node communicates with service nodes not through SSH, but through pem agent on each node.
