Hello @RamyashreeMada ,

 

Thanks for reaching out on LiveCommunity!

In order to do SSH to Broker VM you need to have a RSA key pair. You can generate RSA public and private key with tools like OpenSSH client and PuTTYgen on windows and ssh-keygen command on linux. To find the step by step guide you can search on the internet.

In order to use these key to SSH Broker VM please follow below steps.

1. Navigate to Settings → Configurations → Data Broker → Broker VMs.

2. Right Click the broker vm you want to enable ssh access. Select "configure".

3. Scroll down to section with name "SSH access".

4. Under Type select enabled.

5. Enter the public key in the SSH Public Key section that you have generated earlier. Once one SSH public key is added, if you want you can +Add Another. When you are finished, Save your configuration.

6. Use below command line to access broker vm. Replace the path to actual path of private key. Also enter the IP address for broker vm.

ssh -i [/path/to/private.key] admin@[broker_vm_address]

 

Please refer below link for more details.
