Move Sva Enable ssh

Jump to solution

Hi ,
I tried to perform the following procedure on the SVA machine:

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB89720&locale=en_US

But I get a message that I do not have access to do this, I logged in with an SVAadmin user, I do not know that there is an option to use User Root on Move SVA (Su root) machines, ideas?

There wouldn't be much of a difference, Since the SVA is a Ubuntu-based machine using sudo -i or sudo -s would fit in and it would still be the same password as svaadmin.

Hello C_A

Thank you for writing, The SVA Manager or SVA would have root user access. Using: "sudo -s", you would be prompted for the root credentials, You would need to use the same credentials used for "svaadmin

Please try this and let us know if you still see permission denied errors, and also please let us know which version of MOVE are you using since the article you are referring to is only for MOVE 4.5.x

Thanks for the quick response,
the version is the latest 4.9.0, I will try it soon, basically we tried to use Root by Su root then a password request popped up and we used SVAadmin's password and it failed, is there anything unique in the sudo -s command?

There is indeed a difference between running sudo -s and su, sudo -s verifies the Svaadmin password and SU asks for a root password that is apparently inaccessible, but Sudo -s gave me the options I needed, thanks.
