You can set up the SSH plug-in to ensure encrypted connections.


  1. Log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface as vmware.
  2. Click SSH.
  3. Click New connection.
  4. 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.

  5. Click Apply changes.

    The host is added to the list of SSH connections.

  6. (Optional) Configure an entry path on the server.
    1. Click New root folder.
    2. Enter the new path and click Apply changes.


The SSH host is available in the Inventory view of the Orchestrator client.
