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 or IPv6 address of the DNS/DHCP Server.
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:
- From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
- 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.
- Under Servers, click the name of a BDDS. The Details tab for the server opens.
- Click the server name menu and select Service Configuration.
- 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.
Under General Settings, set the following
- Enable SSH Service—select this check box to enable SSH service; deselect this check box to disable SSH service.
- Click Update.
