1) rootpw "testing" in your ks.cfg must match your "ssh_password": “saint”
in packertest.json .
2) You kickstart file must enable root ssh login in /etc/ssh/sshd_config by
setting PermitRootLogin yes
The simplest way to do this is probably adding this to your ks.cfg before
%end

%post
sed -i 's/.*PermitRootLogin .*/PermitRootLogin yes/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
