I would like to restrict PermitRootLogin in the SSHD config. Therefore I need to create some new users who have access to SSH into some individual ESX 4 boxes. How can I go about accomplishing this? Is it as straight forward as just doing a useradd command from the shell? Thanks!
Yes it is that straightforward - you can also add users through the vSphere client when connected directly to the ESX host -

Yeah thats generally best practice for most Linux boxes. When I upgraded from 3.5 to 4.0, it appears like I either left off the option to add new users or I was never prompted. I am in the process of locking down most of these servers right now. This is the newest list item I am working on. Thanks for the input.
