Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when a user tries to establish a Secure Shell (SSH) connection to a storage system and does not provide the password within the allotted timeout period. Many such connection attempts could potentially disallow other users from logging in to the storage system, causing a Denial of Service (DOS) attack.

Corrective Action

If the remote host is retrying the SSH connection repeatedly, block the remote host by adding its IP address to the deny list using the "firewall policy" command.

Syslog Message

Timeout before password authentication for remote host %s.

Parameters

ipaddress (STRING): IP address of the remote host that was trying to establish an SSH connection.
