vmware esx 4.0 active directory ssh login
Posted on 2010-11-11
How do I add authorized users for ssh access to my ESX 4.0 hosts? I can access the hosts using the viClient and the root user/password or using my Windows credentials. If I try a domain admin account with SSH, it fails. I realize that root is not allowed ssh access by default, but I can't seem to log on with any account.
I do not have physical access to the service console at the moment, so if I can accomplish this with remote tools, that'd be cool. I can get physical console access if needed, but that's a bummer.
