Ssh into rancher vsphere created nodes?

I installed Rancher UI and used it to create 3 nodes in vsphere -very cool and seamless. problem now is I’d like to remote(ssh, etc) into the node(s) and I have no idea how since I don’t know the userid/pw etc of the boxes Rancher used when these were setup?

If you go to the node page under cluster management, you can download the SSH key under the action menu. Note: Each node will have its own set of keys and the default user is Rancher.

But what most people do is bake their service account and ssh keys into their base image.

You can also add the ssh key via the cloud-init.
