SSH in vSphere 4i

Michael Khanin Michael Khanin Profile: Michael Khanin

To enable SSH in vSphere 4i we should do the following steps (similar as esx 3i):

1. First, press Alt + f1 then type “unsupported” and press enter.
2. At the prompt for password, provide the credentials, previously configured, and we will be able to log in to the service console.
3. Do a vi /etc/inetd.conf and look for #ssh. Remove the # and save the file after this.
4. Go to /sbin, and run this command ./ restart

Now, we will have SSH enabled.
