Backup/Restore 2.2.3 does not restore "admin" SSH Authorized Keys

  • Just a heads up - Full backup/restore on a 2.2.3 box does not restore the default "admin" account SSH Authorized Keys.

    This may be by design, but caught me by surprise.


  • The full backup excludes /root/ so it doesn't include authorized_keys. Even if it did, at the subsequent reboot post-restore that file would be overwritten with the contents of authorized keys for admin in the user manager. After restoring a full backup and rebooting, you end up with the authorized_keys for the admin user as defined in the current config.xml.

  • Thanks for the confirmation that this is by design and not a bug.

    I just wasn't expecting it.
