Description of problem:

From Guide Me link, Add Host using SSH PublicKey Authentication fails with "Error while executing action: Cannot install Host with empty password."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Red Hat Storage Console Version: 2.1.2-0.33.el6rhs (CB 15)

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on "Clusters" and create a New Cluster
2. Select the created Cluster and click on "Guide Me"
3. Click on "Configure Host"
4. Enter the mandatory fields and select the Authentication type as "	
SSH PublicKey"
5. Copy the key displayed in the SSH PublicKey field to /root/.ssh/authorized_keys on the host to use public key authentication
6. Click on OK

Actual results: Add Host fails with error "Error while executing action: Cannot install Host with empty password." as it's not detecting that the user has selected the SSH PublicKey Authentication instead of Password Authentication

Expected results: Add Host with SSH PublicKey Authentication should work from the "Guide Me" flow as well.

PS: It works fine in the normal Add New Host flow.

Additional info: Screenshot and log-collector report attached

Verified and works fine with build rhsc-3.0.3-1.17.el6rhs.noarch.

copied the key displayed in the SSH public key of New Host dialog box to /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file.
