Ubuntu virtual machines must have SSH host keys generated to work properly.


Verify that you have the vCloud Director VMRC plug-in installed to work with your browser. For information about compatible Web browsers, see Application Services System Requirements.

  2. Click in the vCloud Director VMRC console.
  3. Log in to the Ubuntu virtual machine.
  4. Enable the SSH connection.
    ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
    "ssh-keygen -t ecdsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key"
  5. Restart the SSH server.
    service ssh restart


The SSH connection to the Ubuntu virtual machine is enabled.
