Session manager 7 SSH issue

Session manager 7 SSH issue

Session manager 7 SSH issue

I have installed new avaya SM7 virtual environment but can't SSH it.
I can ping it but SSH is refused.
any suggestion?

thank you

RE: Session manager 7 SSH issue

Make sure you're SSH'ng to the Management IP and not the sm-100

RE: Session manager 7 SSH issue

what are you SSH'ing from? Putty? Another Linux server?

You can:
ssh user@
ssh -v user@
ssh -vv user@
ssh -vvv user@

Each will show progressively more verbose details about what's happening and why you might be getting refused. SM7 does use newer ciphers for SSH and it tries to be secure and drops older ciphers, so older versions of putty won't work.

For example, if I go in my AAM/MSS at 6.3 and try SSH'ing to SM7, I get this:

admin@mss> ssh user@
no matching mac found: client hmac-md5,hmac-sha1,hmac-ripemd160,hmac-ripemd160@openssh.com,hmac-sha1-96,hmac-md5-96 server hmac-sha2-512,hmac-sha2-256

RE: Session manager 7 SSH issue
