I had posted prior on how to configure SSH keys on 7-mode. I’ve been remiss on getting the SSH keys for cDOT (NetApp’s clustered Data OnTap).
Before I get to the steps, let me list the assumptions:
- The steps below will be for a non-root user
- Root/Administrator privs are available to the user who is setting this up.
- The SSH key for the non-root user has already been generated on the client system.
- The SSH key can be done with a copy/paste from something reading the file (e.g. xterm or notepad) into a shell window with the CLI login into the filer (e.g. xterm or puTTY)
The methodology is fairly simple (provided one has the admin privs):
- Login into filer via CLI with appropriate privileges.
- # go to the security/login section
- # allow for ssh for the user
create -username <username> -application ssh -authmethod publickey
- # enter the public key
create -username <username> -publickey "ssh-rsa <public-key> <username>@<ssh client hostname>"
