Issue is resolved with deepsea version 0.9.31.

# rpm -qa | grep deepsea
# rpm -q --changelog deepsea | grep 1174004
- Create and distribute keyring for ceph-crash (bsc#1174004)

To update deepsea, on the admin node run: 
salt-run state.orch ceph.stage.0

Followed by:
salt-run state.orch ceph.stage.2
salt-run state.orch ceph.stage.3

Stage.3 will create "ceph.client.crash.keyring" and distribute to all the nodes in the cluster


"ceph.client.crash.keyring" is missing on all cluster nodes.
