You can enable Secure Shell (SSH) on a vRealize Operations Manager node for troubleshooting. For example, to troubleshoot a server, you might require console access to the server through SSH. Disable SSH on a vRealize Operations Manager node for normal operation.

Procedure

  1. Access the console of the vRealize Operations Manager node from vCenter.
  2. Press Alt + F1 to access the login prompt then log in.
  3. Run the #systemctl is-enabled sshd command.
  4. If the sshd service is disabled, run the #systemctl enable sshd command.
  5. Run the # systemctl start sshd command to start the sshd service.
  6. Run the # systemctl stop sshd command to stop the sshd service.

    You can also enable or disable Secure Shell from the SSH Status column of the vRealize Operations Manager administration interface.
