You will need to create a public key on the installer system for SSH login into Telco Cloud Operations virtual machines.

Complete the following steps to create public key.

Procedure

  1. Run the ssh-keygen command. See the following code block as an example.
    $ ssh-keygen
    Generating public/private rsa key pair.
    Enter file in which to save the key (/home/user_name/.ssh/id_rsa):
    Created directory '/home/user_name/.ssh'.
    Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
    Enter same passphrase again:
    Your identification has been saved in /home/user_name/.ssh/id_rsa.
    Your public key has been saved in /home/user_name/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
    The key fingerprint is:
    SHA256:ZqXNqWYTWFL1jIEsYjjWhW42q/dY1q2KDhnwKQoxiW8 user_name@butler-worker.eng.vmware.com
    The key's randomart image is:
    +---[RSA 2048]----+
    |   o o...oo      |
    |..+ = ..o  =     |
    |*. + .... o o    |
    | * .=  + = .     |
    |o Eo o. S +      |
    |oo o.  + +       |
    |. o.  o * .      |
    |  ...= o o       |
    |   o+.o..        |
    +----[SHA256]-----+
  2. Accept all the defaults.
  3. Press Enter when prompted for a passphrase.
    This creates a public key pair for both public and private keys.

    The public and private keys are created in the user home directory in a .ssh folder. The public key extension is .pub.
