I tried adding '-d' to the sshd parameters, but that doesn't help (gives

What does /var/log/sshd.log say?

It remains empty, on both servers.

Based on time stamp, it appears to last touched when I ran sshd from command
line. As said, now the sshd is running as a service on an user account. With
SYSTEM account, service still fails to start with error code 255. I believe
sshd fails to _execute_ for some curious reason (so it doesn't get to open
the log), but why?

IIRC, the default installation of sshd as service used the event log for
all output, rather than /var/log/sshd.log (though I'm not too sure on this

Right.  But Ville mentioned that he ran sshd with the '-d' flags which
would send diagnostics to /var/log/sshd.log.
