Enable SSH on BES-53248 cluster switches - BES-53248 switches

SSH is a requirement when using the Cluster Switch Health Monitor (CSHM) and log collection features. To enable SSH on BES-53248 cluster switches, you generate the SSH keys first and then enable SSH.

Steps
  1. Generate the SSH keys:

    crypto key generate

    (switch) #**show ip ssh**
    
    SSH Configuration
    
    Administrative Mode: .......................... Disabled
    SSH Port: ..................................... 22
    Protocol Level: ............................... Version 2
    SSH Sessions Currently Active: ................ 0
    Max SSH Sessions Allowed: ..................... 5
    SSH Timeout (mins): ........................... 5
    Keys Present: ................................. DSA(1024) RSA(1024) ECDSA(521)
    Key Generation In Progress: ................... None
    SCP server Administrative Mode: ............... Disabled
    
    (switch) #**config**
    
    (switch) (Config)#**crypto key generate rsa**
    
    Do you want to overwrite the existing RSA keys? (y/n):**y**
    
    
    (switch) (Config)#**crypto key generate dsa**
    
    Do you want to overwrite the existing DSA keys? (y/n):**y**
    
    
    (switch) (Config)#**crypto key generate ecdsa 521**
    
    Do you want to overwrite the existing ECDSA keys? (y/n):**y**
    
    
    (switch) (Config)#**exit**
  2. Enable SSH:

    ip ssh server enable

    (switch) #**ip ssh server enable**
    
    (switch) #**show ip ssh**
    
    SSH Configuration
    
    Administrative Mode: .......................... Enabled
    SSH Port: ..................................... 22
    Protocol Level: ............................... Version 2
    SSH Sessions Currently Active: ................ 0
    Max SSH Sessions Allowed: ..................... 5
    SSH Timeout (mins): ........................... 5
    Keys Present: ................................. DSA(1024) RSA(1024) ECDSA(521)
    Key Generation In Progress: ................... None
    SCP server Administrative Mode: ............... Disabled
    
    (switch) #
