why ssh_host_dsa_key and ssh_host_rsa_key are not password protected

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I had implemented the password protection of the ssh servers in my
previous ortganization, now I am not able to start the sshd with new
versions of OpenSSH shipped iwth SLES-9 if the /etc/ssh/ssh_host*key
are password/passphrase  protected. The idea is that I don't want my
sshd to be restarted unattenhded. There should be someone on the
console to type the passphrase to start these daemons during the
bootstrap or otherwise. It is just like starting a ssl enabled web
server where the server's keys are passphrtase protected.

Plerase reply to me as I don't read the group often, I will summarize
the resukts to the newsgroup.
