Enable SSH access for non standard administrative accounts

Chris Swinney

Hi All,

According the VCS Admin Guide (p 298, x8.5.1), it suggests that "In general, local administrator accounts are used to access the VCS on its web interface or API interface, but are not permitted to access the CLI".

Well, I would like to make an exception so how do I go about doing this. The sentence above seems to suggest that exceptions are possible, but I can't find any further reference.

We have looked at the "/etc/ssh/sshd_config", but of course this is a read only file structure.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Chris

I don't think it's possible, outside of the admin account to access the CLI interface.  I know the phrase says "In general", but to me it reads as if all CLI access is restricted to all, except the admin account.

This has been confirmed by Cisco.
