So far you guys have helped me out tremendously and looking for another answer. I have an ESX3.02 cluster with local datastores managed via VC2.0. I have a couple templates that I would like to move over to my newly created ESX3.5 farm that now has SAN attached DataStores. The template is powered off currently and I have tried to use WINSCP and PSCP to copy the template to the new ESX3.5 VMFS3 datastore. Using the below syntax and getting access denied.
I have checked permissions and all seems to be correct but can't seem to figure out what is missing.
This can be due to a number of reasons -
insure that SSH Client port is opened on the originating host service console firewall
make sure root logins are allowed on the destination host by modifying the sshd_config changing the parameter permitrootlogin no to yes and restarting the SSHD service
final question regarding this. Can these changes be made and the sshd daemon be restarted on the existing 3.02 production environment with no issue? I just want to make sure I don't go causing problems.
Yes it works the same way in both the 3.0.x and 3.5 environments - restart the SSH daemon will not cause any issues -
