Enabling Public-Key SSH Access On A NetApp Filer

On the Netapp Storage System Root Volume:

  • mount /vol/vol0 on the Host machine
  • cd to etc on netapp, further cd sshd/root/.ssh if not exists create it
  • in NetApp Storage System go to /etc/sshd/root/.ssh copy public key generated on the monitoring host here with authorized_keys name, make sure it has 600 root permissions as well as .ssh directory
On the Netapp Storage System console
  • Run the Secure Admin Setup using the command secureadmin setup ssh Setup will now generate the host keys. It will take a minute. After Setup is finished the SSH server will start automatically.
  • make sure that ssh option on Netapp "ssh.pubkey_auth.enable" is on
You should now be able to ssh root@filer

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
