Manage your storage with CLI and PuTTY (Plink)

There are times when you are required to access your storage server remotely via the SSH (or a similar) protocol, using CLI instead of Web GUI. For this purpose, you can choose from a wide range of available terminal emulators. Our latest webcast explains how to access and manage Open-E DSS V7 using a popular PuTTY client (and a related command line application called Plink) in Windows.

In the demonstration video, our moderator created a snapshot of a sample Open-E DSS V7 volume and presented how simple it is to manage it remotely from CLI.
Full list of topics covered by this week’s webcast is shown below:

  • Enabling the Remote control access in Open-E DSS V7
  • Configuring a PuTTY client
  • Creating and managing snapshots in Open-E DSS V7
  • Accessing a snapshot share
  • Generating a SSH key in Open-E DSS V7
  • Converting an Open-E DSS V7 SSH key to Plink private key with PuTTYgen
  • Using Plink and ppk key for authentication (without password)
