You can set up the SSH plug-in to ensure encrypted connections.
- Log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface as vmware.
- Click SSH.
- Click New connection.
- In the Host name text box, type the host to access with SSH through Orchestrator.
No username and password are required because Orchestrator uses the credentials of the currently logged-in user to run SSH commands. You must reproduce the accounts you want to work on SSH on target hosts from the LDAP server.
- Click Apply changes.
The host is added to the list of SSH connections.
- (Optional) Configure an entry path on the server.
- Click New root folder.
- Enter the new path and click Apply changes.
The SSH host is available in the Inventory view of the Orchestrator client.
