    ESX4.1 SSH access for Active Directory User.

    kseniuk1 Novice


      I upgraded one of my test servers from 4.0 update 2 to ESX 4.1. I am trying to figure out how to configure SSH access for my Active Directory account. I have joined the host to active directory and granted my AD acount administrator permissions on the host. If I try and ssh to the host with my AD account I am getting access denied. I can connect via the vSphere Client with my AD account successfully. SSH works with a local account on the ESX4.1 server. I tried both with just my username at the SSH login as well as domain\username. Using domain\username actually hangs the host and I have to do a hard reset to get it back.



      Anyone get this to work?



      With 4.0 update 2 I used esxcfg-auth --enablead and then created a user with no password on the host. That command no longer exists on 4.1 though.
