Is there a way to enable SSH on NSX-T 2.4.x Managers after the initial installation?

NSX-T appliances use systemd so: systemctl sshd start should do it.

Hi,

Enable SSH and, if needed, allow root SSH login to the NSX Manager command line.

By default, these options are disabled for security reasons.

Deploy NSX-T Data Center NSX Manager Appliance

Install VMware NSX-T 2.4 Manager with vSphere Client • Virtual Brigade

I was trying to get the same done and finally got it done, here is what I have followed.

1) Opened the NSX-T Manager VM console and logged as root.

2) Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config in vim editor by modifying the following line,

Change PermitRootLogin to yes

Change StrictModes to no

3) Restart the ssh service

/etc/init.d/ssh restart
