Thanks for the reply Junaid !!

These below steps were already taken care of. I am able to run vm specific 
commands like "virsh list"  without using the the password. Still getting 
commissioning failed ,

$ sudo chsh -s /bin/bash maas
$ sudo su - maas
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
$ ssh-copy-id <infra>@<infra_ip>

Hi Parbakaran,

Make sure you have passwordless ssh-access from maas-user to the infra 
I would suggest running these commands on maas-controller and try to 
commission again:

$ sudo chsh -s /bin/bash maas
$ sudo su - maas
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
$ ssh-copy-id <infra>@<infra_ip>
$ exit
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa

Hello Team,

I have installed MAAS and tried to setup MAAS. I am setting up virtual 
machines to use as nodes with MAAS, and I have selected the power type as 
virsh. After manually adding the machine(node), within few minutes of 
commissioning process got failed stating “'Commissioning' timed out after 
0:20:00”. Below is maas log link
I tried few methods of troubleshooting but no luck. Below are the 
troubleshooting steps which I have tried. 
1, sudo dpkg-reconfigure maas-region-controller 
2, sudo dpkg-reconfigure maas-cluster-controller
Please advise me on this issue.
