No they are migrated from /opt/csw/etc/ssh not /etc/ssh.
Do you also have the migration problem with files from /opt/csw/etc/ssh/ ?

This is more a warning, the new elliptic curve algorithm needs a new 
host key.
This will not prevent openssh from working with dsa/rsa, but will add 
the generation of this new host key in the init script.

Concerning Solaris 9, we had a discussion and I think the problem was at 
this time not in openssh but in some autoenable settings but I will look 
into this.
If there is a problem, I suspect it would probably be in the class 
action script but I will test this.

Concerning autostart, csw openssh is configured to start at boot. You 
would prefer it to be autostarted by default at first install because of 
SUN ssh ?

Thanks for having tested the package.
