Cant SSH into Cisco ASA

SSH used to work fine, no changes were made when it stopped working.

I can ADSM in.

When I attempt to SSH in, its not like I get instantly rejected network wise, but the putty prompt just sits there.

This is production so a reboot will be challenging .

Yep I have those 2 commands confirmed.

SSH outside
aaa authentication ssh console local

Yes I was thinking about re generate crypto key.

What affects will this have on the production server? I know it would break any current SSH sessions if they were there, but what about anything else?

I don't think you would have an issue doing this.  I have had to do this on a number of occassions.

Although if it is a bug it won't fix the problem.  Would have to reboot for that.
