I have run all the parts of the Ordering tasks, I have restarted the sshd service by hand even, but I cannot get 'quest' to recognize that I have finished the step

You should set it to "yes".

You can check the task condition by running:

grep GSSAPI /root/.testing/spec/localhost/ordering_spec.rb

for me it shows:

describe "GSSAPIAuthentication" do file('/etc/ssh/sshd_config').should contain /^GSSAPIAuthentication yes/

Actually, the task condition is incorrect. The lab asks us to disable it, so Puppet should make the fix and repackage the VM. Here's a diff to apply:

+++ /root/.testing/spec/localhost/ordering_spec.rb      2014-08-13 17:14:37.000000000 +0000

 describe "GSSAPIAuthentication" do
   it 'should be disable in the sshd config file' do
-    file('/etc/ssh/sshd_config').should contain /^GSSAPIAuthentication yes/
+    file('/etc/ssh/sshd_config').should contain /^GSSAPIAuthentication no/

Thanks for that solution. I was beating my head against a wall due to the Quest_Guide.pdf stating that we should change GSSAPIAuthentication yes to be GSSAPIAuthentication no ... it also may make sense to explain the hash # in the document and where to simply comment/un-comment the relevant code.
