The ssh-host-config script adds the sshd_server user to the local admin
group, *iff* the user replies "yes" to the question

  Should this script create a new local account 'sshd_server' which has
  the required privileges?
If it fails to do so, you should have gotten a warning like this:

  WARNING: Adding user sshd_server to local group ${_admingroup} failed!
  Please add sshd_server to local group ${_admingroup} before
  starting the sshd service!

If you have already created an account sshd_server prior to running the
ssh-host-config script, then you're out of luck.
