Using ssh keys with ESXi

  • First “unlock” your ESXi
  • Create your sshkey (puttykeygen or ssh-keygen) on the client machine
  • Place the keyfile (for example : id_rsa.pub) from the client on the host
  • Create “.ssh” directory on the root of ESXi device
  • cat id_rsa.pub >> /.ssh/authorized_keys
  • chmod 0600 -R /.ssh on the ESXi
