Connecting to virtual appliances - BlueCat Address Manager - 8.3.0

BlueCat AWS Virtual Appliances

BlueCat Address Manager

To be able to connect to your BlueCat DNS for AWS, you must login as the bluecat user via SSH with the generated key pair file.

Attention: In accordance with AWS best practices, root login has been removed from BlueCat DNS for AWS v8.1.1 and greater. If you defined custom SSH keys for root in BlueCat DNS for AWS v8.3.1 / v8.3.0, the keys will be copied over to the bluecat user upon upgrade to version 8.1.1 or greater.
To connect your instances via SSH:
  • ssh -i <key_pair_file_name> bluecat@<eth0_ip>
    Note: This will bypass the ID/Password login credential.

After successfully connecting to your instances, you can now access the BlueCat DNS for AWS command-line interface using sudo su - admin.
