using private-public certificate to connect via SSH with Putty

Hello,

I have a netapp 2040, using Ontap 8.0.2.

I wish to connect via shh from a Windows server, using plink.exe (which is part of Putty). I won't to be asked for an user/password.

On an standard connection to a linux server all I have to do is generate (using puttygen.exe) the public and private certificate, and the copy the public certificate to .ssh dir.

But how could I do it on Ontap 8.0.2? Because all I found is a dir called "etc/sshd", and inside it there isn't a "authorized_key" file.

Googling I found this method:

but this is old information and I don't know if it's still valid.

Thank for your help.
