Updating system settings to allow Use My Account

After downloading the SSH master key file, you can modify the system settings to allow any user with view permissions and an account on that system to log on.

To enable Use My Account

  1. In the Admin Portal, click Resources, then click Systems to display the list of computers and network devices.

  2. Select a system to display system-specific details.

  3. Select Settings and then select Use My Account to enable secure shell sessions without a password.

    Once the Use My Account option is enabled for a system, the action is visible to all users even if they don’t have an account available. If users without an account select the action, however, the logon attempt will fail with an error message.

    Note:   When logging in as an Active Directory user on an Active Directory-joined machine, you will see a dialog box asking to enter a username.

  4. Next you need to modify the SSHD configuration file (see one of the instructions below). Select the instruction applicable to your configuration.
