Broken openssh-server monitor on Debian 9

Issue #645 closed
Antoine Benoit created an issue

The default openssh-server monitor has a dependency on a check that ensures that the server has a DSA key configured.

That is not the case on a fresh Debian 9 installation (with monit 5.20.0-6 installed from apt), so the check fails.

As a result openssh-server is stopped when first activating this monitor which means the administrator can be locked out of the serveur because of this.

On my Debian 9 server, I just disabled the DSA key check in the monit script for openssh-server.

    Please can you post your monit configuration?

    Monit's ssh protocol check doesn't check any keys.
