KB-0367: OpenSSH tools not importing the host-keys

Centrify OpenSSH tools are not importing the keys during install.


- Centrify OpenSSH will attempt to import any existing host keys from /etc/ssh/ and save them into /etc/centrifydc/ssh/ folder.

- If no existing keys are found in /etc/ssh/ new keys will be generated automatically in /etc/centrifydc/ssh/ folder.

If the stocked version of OpenSSH was installed in a non-standard location, Centrify OpenSSH installer cannot find them and hence existing keys in locations other than /etc/ssh/ will have to be manually imported after installation by running the following command as root:

cp -p /location/of/keys/ssh_host* /etc/centrifydc/ssh/
