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.

Re: unable to SSH to Cluster mgmt - ONTAP 9

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.

Re: unable to SSH to Cluster mgmt - ONTAP 9

Did you find a solution or does the issue still exits?

I would check first the firewall-policy

::> net int show -vserver -lif svm_lif_mgmt -fields firewall-policy,address

vserver                  lif address        firewall-policy

--------------          ------------------ ------------ 

svm_lif_mgmt  <IP>                   mgmt    <--- be aware, data is false for this use case

Re: unable to SSH to Cluster mgmt - ONTAP 9

Hello everyone,

 

I have a similar problem as described before. As setup I have a two node cluster. If the cluster mgmt ip is hosted on the e0M port of the first controller, I am able to ping the ip address but can not login via ssh. I get the rror message "connection refused...". If I migrate the interface the interface to the e0M port of the second controller. I am able to login via ssh?

So the node mgmt ip address on the first node doesnt too. The strange thing is, that I am able to login via ssh to the service processor of the first node, which is the same physical port (e0M).

Anyone here which have the same problem?

 

kind regards
