Add an SSH Public Key to an Instance

Oracle will add an SSH public key to all instances when an instance is deployed. This is the SSH public key that you generated and provided to Oracle when you initially ordered the Oracle SPARC Model 300 Service.

  • Add SSH public keys to an instance so you can access the instance from other hosts.

    Add the remote system's public key file, id_rsa.pub, to the local system by appending the id_rsa.pub file to the instance user's /export/home/user_name/.ssh/authorized_keys file.

    Note -  Copy the full contents of the id_rsa.pub file as a single line. Do not insert line breaks or carriage returns.
