this patch configures the new SSH features of SSSD in ipa-client-install.

To test it, you need to have SSSD 1.8.0 installed.


Is there a better name for 'GlobalKnownHostsFile2'?

What do you mean? The option name or the file name? Either way, I don't think there is a better name.

When is PubKeyAgent used?I tried in RHEL 6.2, F-11 and F15-17 and it was
an unknown option in all.

It's in openssh in RHEL 6.0.

Should you test for the existence of /usr/bin/sss_ssh_knownhostsproxy
and /usr/bin/sss_ssh_authorizedkeys before setting it in a config file?

It depends. Do we want to support clients with SSSD < 1.8.0?

How would you recommend testing this? Enroll a client and try to log
into the IPA server?

To test host authentication, you need an IPA host with SSH public keys set (which is done automatically in ipa-client-install, so any IPA host should work) and try to ssh into that host from other (actually, it can be the same) IPA host. You should not see "The authenticity of host ... can't be estabilished" ssh message.

To test user authentication, you need an IPA user with SSH public keys set. To do that, you need to set the public keys using ipa user-mod. You should then be able to authenticate using your private key on any IPA host.
