unable to ssh into the switches. Any idea how to restore ssh
functionality?

Hi,

For security reasons, NX-OS Release 4.2(1a) does not support RSA version 1 keys. As a result, if you upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.2(1a) from an earlier version that did support RSA version 1 keys, and you had configured a RSA version 1 key for SSH, then you will not be able to log in through SSH following the upgrade.

Check out the belowlink from cisco regarding the same hope that helps out your query !!
