unable to SSH to Cluster mgmt - ONTAP 9



I have setup a 2 node cluster across 2 VM's - I attempt to SSH into the mgmt interface via PuTTY and I receive "Error: Connection Refused" - I am able to ping the address assigned to mgmt interface. I am using the admin account and as far as I Know the access rights for SSH are enabled by default? is there somthing else I must to do in order to SSH to this?



any help/advice is appreciated.

SSH is enabled by default. You need to use the cluster management ip address. Refer

If this post resolved your issue, help others by selecting ACCEPT AS SOLUTION or adding a KUDO.

We have recently installed 3 clusters and faced the same problem. Some times SSH access is not enabled by default for "admin". Login to cluster GUI using https://cluster_mgmt_IP.



Go to Configurations --> Users --> select 'admin' --> click edit --> add --> select SSH in Application dropdown list --> select admin in Role dropdown list --> click OK --> modify.


This should resolve your access issue.
