Authentication fails with SSH username or credentials
Cloud providers vary in their support for Secure Shell (SSH) authentication.
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
AWS cloud deployments use the cloud-init method to provision an SSH key
puppetadmin user but disable root
SSH access. You must specify a key pair when launching an AWS Marketplace image and connect it with
the matching private key. For example, you can run:
aws ec2 run-instance --key-name <KEYPAIR_NAME> … … ssh -i ~/.ssh/<KEYPAIR_PRIVATE>.pem puppetadmin@<PRIMARY_HOSTNAME>
Azure cloud deployments support authentication with either an SSH key pair or a username and password. The private key must be the pair of the public key specified when you created the image.
