Public
This issue occurs because SSH is disabled by default.
To enable this, do one of the following options:
Option 1: Enabling SSH that requires rebooting the SPS
  1. Log on to the SPS shell.
  2. Type this command:
    chkconfig sshd on
  3. Restart SPS.
Option 2: Enabling SSH or SCP without rebooting the SPS
  1. Log on to the CLI or SPS shell as root.
  2. Run "chkconfig sshd on".
  3. Execute "service sshd start".
  4. Run "service svaiptables restart".
You should now be able to SSH or SCP into the SPS server.
