Secure Shell - BlueCat Integrity - 9.3.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Integrity

Enable or disable Secure Shell (SSH) Version 2 for DNS/DHCP Server from the Address Manager user interface.

With SSH enabled, you can use an SSH client to access the DNS/DHCP Server Administration Console via the physical IPv4 address of the DNS/DHCP Server.
Attention: This service cannot be configured on DNS/DHCP Servers operating in an xHA pair.
Note: SSH upgraded to include AES encryption

Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server have been updated to include only AES ciphers, in accordance with FIPS 140-2 certification requirements, to ensure that communications using SSH are secure. As a result, customers using older SSH clients may need to upgrade to an SSH Client that supports AES encryption.

To configure SSH on a DNS/DHCP Server:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click the name of a BDDS. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server name menu and select Service Configuration.
  5. From the Service Type drop-down menu, select Secure Shell (SSH). Address Manger queries the server and returns the current values for the service settings.
  6. Under General Settings, set the following parameter:
    • Enable SSH Service—select this check box to enable SSH service; deselect this check box to disable SSH service.
  7. Click Update.
