Cephadm host check intermittently fails
This document (000021074) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Enterprise Storage 7
After the timeout values for sshd have been changed to
on a node, "ceph -s
1 hosts fail cephadm check
roughly every twenty minutes.
Set ClientAliveInterval in /etc/ssh/sshd_config to a value different than 600 and restart the sshd service.
The OpenSSH version on SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP2, on which SUSE Enterprise Storage 7 is based, and earlier will terminate connections immediately after ClientAliveInterval seconds if ClientAliveCountMax is set to zero. The host check interval by the Ceph orchestrator is ten minutes. If ClientAliveInterval is set to 600 seconds (ten minutes), sshd will likely terminate the existing connection just as Ceph is trying to perform a host check, which can result in a spurious host check failure. Setting ClientAliveInterval to any other value avoids this situation.
This issue does not happen with SUSE Enterprise Storage 7.1, which is based on SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3, due to a newer OpenSSH version. ClientAliveCountMax set to zero disables connection termination there.
