Accessing Data Hub cluster via SSH

If you plan to access a running cluster via a command line client, SSH into any cluster node.

Method Credentials
Root SSH access to cluster VMs CDP administrators can access cluster nodes as cloudbreak user with the SSH key provided during cluster creation.

On Mac OS, you can use the following syntax to SSH to the VM:

ssh -i "privatekey.pem" cloudbreak@publicIP

For example:

ssh -i "testkey-kp.pem" cloudbreak@p90.101.0.132

On Windows, you can access your cluster via SSH by using an SSH client such as PuTTY. For more information, refer to How to use PuTTY on Windows.

Non-root SSH access to cluster VMs All users can access cluster nodes via SSH with their workload user name and FreeIPA password.

When accessing CDP for the first time, you must set FreeIPA password. The password also needs to be reset each time you are added to a new environment.

For more information about FreeIPA password and instructions for setting/resetting it, refer to Set or Reset FreeIPA Password.

For instructions on how to find your workload user name, refer to Finding Your Workload User Name.

On Mac OS, you can use the following syntax to SSH to the VM:

ssh workload-user@publicIP

For example:

ssh jsmith@190.101.0.132

On Windows, you can access your cluster via SSH by using an SSH client such as PuTTY. For more information, refer to How to use PuTTY on Windows.
