That's a future item to work on.

A while back I had started to work on harvesting the node's ssh host keys. I only got as far as adding the fields to the computer table, but never made the time to complete it.

Today the user's update their known_host file or have turned off stricthostkeychecking.

So it would be good to complete have this.

xCAT2.X does something different to collect the ssh host keys, so
eventually makesshgkh and the original module will not be needed.

Ok, that makes sense.

Based on this, I assume you have different ssh keys on different images.
If so, how do you keep your users who regularly check out linux images
from having key conflicts?  In order to work around this, we're ensuring
all of our images have the same ssh keys.  Thus, no need to collect the
key after imaging, and our users don't have to worry about key conflicts.
