This section describes how to start the SSH Service on the HCX Manager to access to the command-line interface.

To access to the HCX Manager shell, use a VMware Remote Console session in the vSphere Client or establish an SSH session. If the SSH Service was not activated during the initial HCX Manager installation, you must first activate it:


  1. Log in to the HCX Appliance Management interface: https://hcx-ip-or-fqdn:9443.
  2. Go to Appliance Summary.
  3. Under System Level Services, locate the SSH Service.
  4. Click Start.
