Fix sshd_config issue

Sometime “sshd_config ” get messed because of ILO flaky or if you are not good with VI. So here is what we have to do to get it fix

1. If “sshd_config” is under /etc/ssh/sshd_config got modified you may not be able to do ssh into ESX host.

2. If host is already connected to virtual center then upload the file using “Browse Database ” and upload it under /vmfs/volumes partition. From there move it to /etc/ssh folder. You can use sshd_config from any other host.



mv /vmfs/volumes /sshd_config /etc/ssh/

I usually do this only after I add the host into VC. Then restart ssh service

/etc/init.d/ssh restart.

This should fix the problem
