If root access to the Ecosystem Manager server is disabled, complete the following steps to enable SSH with public key authentication as root user from Viewpoint to the Ecosystem Manager server and block root with password access.
Modify sshd_config on the Ecosystem Manager servers:
$ vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
# Globally disables all root logins over SSH PermitRootLogin no ... # Match block for Viewpoint IP's - This should be at the very end of # the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file # Permits public key authentication as root only for the ip addresses # referenced above Match Address 10.25.112.27,10.25.112.194 PermitRootLogin without-password
$ /etc/init.d/sshd restart
