Importing SSH keys generated using ssh-keygen

After generating an SSH key using ssh-keygen and creating the file, you must do the following:

  1. Locate and open the file with a text editor. The file should begin with the text ssh-dss or ssh-rsa.
  2. At the end of the line, append a " " (space) and the name of a valid iLO 3 user name as shown on the Modify User page. For example: xxx_some text_xxx ASmith

    The user name is case-sensitive and must match the case of the iLO 3 user name to associate the SSH key with the correct user.

  3. Save and close the file.

The key file is ready to import and authorize.
