Backup CUCM via SFTP using ssh-key

Answered Question

Hello,


I have to backup about 15 CallManagers (mostly CUCM6.1) to an centralized management debian server via SFTP protocol. The problem is the server accepts ssh connections authorized with ssh-keys only, not pass-phrases. This is how its said in internal security policy.


Is there any option how to import into CUCM or generate SSH-KEY inside CUCM (cucm shell, I havent found anything similar in web-gui)? And then paste CUCM's public-key to the server backup user's .ssh/authorized_keys file? So SFTP backup will authenticate via SSH key instead of passhprase?


Does anyone of you confort similar solution?


I would appreciate any kind of idea or help.


Thanks a lot and wish you all happy new year ;-)

Not possible, CUCM backup method only uses that simple authentication mechanism of user/pwd configured under SFTP location.

Either set a simple SFTP client or do tape backups.

I'm not happy nor surprised but this still answered my question. Thanks for your clarification java!


Hope some kind of ssh-key backup implementation will be on a roadmap for next releases, CUCM is still linux appliance and this is one of essencial functionality.


Thanks,


J.
