Confirming the SSHD version

Perform the following procedures to determine which of the following SSHD versions your system is using:

  • Standard OpenSSH (used with Centrify Client and DirectControl configurations)
  • Centrify-compiled OpenSSH (used with DirectControl configurations only)

To confirm the SSHD version you are using:

  1. Access the target Unix system where you intend to download the SSH master key file.
  2. Run the following command to determine which SSH daemon is running (the standard OpenSSH or Centrify-compiled version):

    >ps -ef | grep sshd

  3. Note which SSH daemon is running:

    If the result is: /usr/sbin/sshd, you are running the standard OpenSSH version.

    If the result is: /usr/share/centrifydc/sbin/sshd, you are running the Centrify-compiled version.

  4. Next you need to download the SSH master key file (see Downloading the SSH master key file).
