Enabling the Secure Shell server

SSH is enabled on the advanced management module by default, and a host key is automatically generated for SSH.

The value that is displayed on the page (Enabled or Disabled) is the last selected value and is the value that is used when the management module is restarted. For the advanced management module, these changes take effect immediately.

  • You can enable the Secure Shell server only if a valid Secure Shell host key is installed.
  • For the advanced management module, the SSH and Secure SMASH interfaces are enabled by default.
  • For the advanced management module, the Secure Shell server also can be enabled or disabled through SNMP or the management-module command-line interface. See the BladeCenter Advanced Management Module Command-Line Interface Reference Guide for more information.

To enable the Secure Shell server, complete the following steps:

  1. In the navigation pane, click Security.
  2. Scroll to the Secure Shell (SSH) Server section. A page similar to the one in the following illustration is displayed.
