Passwordless SSH impersonation on UNIX/Linux
For agents running on UNIX and Linux you can use passwordless SSH impersonation. Use one of the following methods:
Default SSH keys.
SSH keys with a non-default name or location.
- SSH Protocol version 1 is not supported.
- Passwordless SSH impersonation on Windows agents is not supported.
- DA only reads SSH keys and is not responsible for their delivery and maintenance.
Using default SSH keys
To use default SSH keys you need:
- A successful SSH connection using the console client without specifying an identity file.
- SSH key default location and name without additional configurations, for example:
Using non-default SSH keys
To use non-default SSH keys you must specify the location and name of the keys in one of these configuration files:
Configuration file example
IdentityFile is the path to the secret key.
- Only the configuration parameter
IdentityFileis supported. All other parameters are ignored.
- The value for the parameter
Useris taken from the impersonation settings.
- For information about the configuration file format, enter
man ssh_configin the terminal of any UNIX or Linux system that has SSH installed.
