Remote Access for Linux AccountsΒΆ

You can log in remotely as a Linux user(either sysadmin or a local LDAP user) using ssh.


For security reasons, it is recommended that ONLY admin level users be allowed to SSH to the nodes of the StarlingX. Non-admin level users should strictly use remote CLIs or remote web GUIs.

Specifying the OAM floating IP address as the target establishes a connection to the currently active controller; however, if the OAM floating IP address moves from one controller node to another, the ssh session is blocked. To ensure access to a particular controller regardless of its current role, specify the controller physical address instead.


Password-based access to the root account is not permitted over remote connections.
