    Log in host failure

    lwsamcn01 Novice

      Hello, Expert,

       

      I reset  root password remotely. for ESXI 6.5.

       

      Now, if I like to log in the host or connect to the host, I have to log in  vCenter appliance to enable host ssh service, then I can log in the host by web client.

       

      As far as I know I can log in the host(connect with the host) freely before changing the root password.

       

      what action did I lose?

       

      brgds.

              Hello, Rajiv,

               

              vCenter server managed two hosts. lia-hs01 and lia-hs02. Lia-hs01 is able working well.

               

              Problem is for lia-hs02.

               

              if I like to log in lia-hs02. i have to log vcenter server to start SSH service and then I can log in.

               

              Also, connect by putty refused, I have to start SSH service before connecting.

               

              I am not sure what cause this problem. I only do the below:

              on 08/07/2019, I reset vcenter server root password by putty.

                Hi Liu Wei,

                 

                Can you check the port of your vcenter , please check are you able to browse your vcenter on 9443 or not .

                 

                follow the below steps :

                 

                Go to Vcenter select host ( lia-hs02 ) > configuration > security  profile , now check in SSH server setting whether is allow to communicate with any ip address or set of ip address on following ports 9443 , 80 ,  22 (port 22 is for SSH ).

                 

                or

                 

                Remove host ( lia-hs02 ) from Vcenter and then add .It will pop-up you if any ports are not proper communicating  also it will redirect the agent also .
