E5700 ssh remote login

gfz-marco

Hello

 

We just got two E5700 and can't figure out how to login using ssh.

 

Webgui works fine, admin user/password is configured but the same user/pw that works for the webgui won't work with ssh.

 

What are we doing wrong?

 

Cheers

Marco

You won't be able to use the same user/passwd to access the shell as you use to access the gui. I recommend you contact support for information on access using ssh. Is there some specific task you are trying to perform that you believe requires ssh access?

Hi Mitch

 

This begs the question why the customer can activate but not use the remote login (ssh) in the first place?

 

Our intention was to get more detailed information and options.

For example, the sensors in the gui just show the state "optimal", which is nice but doesn't help if it comes to syslogging exact data and events.

 

We have configured syslog in the settings, but would like to compare the data "low level", thus using a shell.

 

If this is not an option for the customer ... ok

Hey @gfz-marco

 

Have you enabled remote login?

 

Hardware -> Show back of shelf -> Select controller A ->  Change Remote Login

 

That should guide you through enabling ssh access

 

cheers,

Works well, Thanks for posting.

Hi Pablo

 

We already activated Remote Login on Controller B and we can connect via ssh, but when trying to login as "admin", the same user we use on the webgui, we just can't logon to the console.

 

Webgui: admin/pw - ok

ssh: admin/pw - fail
