unable to SSH to Cluster mgmt - ONTAP 9

Hello,

 

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.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

SSH is enabled by default. You need to use the cluster management ip address. Refer http://docs.netapp.com/ontap-9/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.netapp.doc.dot-cm-sag%2FGUID-8377119E-2B13-42B5-A041-0D0E1B82CBB9.html

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.
