root ssh on vCSA (whoops!)

I'm going to make a post with some hardening and vmware-linux-best-practices-that-vmware-has-not-done of VMware's vCenter Server Appliance (5.1), but only after I stop locking myself out...

If you turn off root ssh before creating another real user in the appliance, do not be alarmed. You can head into the admin web interface and change the setting on the Admin tab (Toggle SSH setting). The Administrator SSH logon enabled will change from no to yes (assuming you haven't locked yourself out of the web admin as well). :)

Oh, and the new skitch sucks.
