Re: SSH Key Storage against the Host

Hi Rakhesh,

This is to manually specify the location where the client details to be stored otherwise it get stored in sysdb tuple.

Its not possible to view them in file format. By configuring the file as you mentioned above using ssh known hosts, it gets started storing in the mentioned file. ex below:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:GOT#show run | i ssh

Building configuration...

ssh client knownhost harddisk:/known_hosts

ssh server v2

ssh server vrf default

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:GOT#dir harddisk:/known_hosts

Directory of harddisk:

8171890     -rw-  59          Thu Oct 24 12:51:13 2013  known_hosts

3261054976 bytes total (2736045568 bytes free)

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:GOT#

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:GOT#more harddisk:/known_hosts

00000000:  37000000 33000000 13000000 312e3536    7... 3... .... 1.56

00000010:  2e33342e 3235312f 7373682d 64737303    .34. 251/ ssh- dss.

00000020:  00000014 00000048 39f3b573 3bb49640    .... ...H 9s5s ;4.@

Re: SNMP Key Storage agains the Host

Are you looking for SSH RSA based authentication ? Yes, its supported in XR.

What information do you need on SNMP key storage ? can you explain ?

SSH Key Storage against the Host

Hello Venkat,

Thanks for the reply, Can you let me know what the below code does ?

-----------------------

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# configure 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# ssh client knownhost disk0:/ssh.knownhost

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# commit

 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router# ssh host1 username user1234

Host key not found from the list of known hosts. 

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes 

Password: 

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:host1# exit

Thank You
