Change ssh port onboard administrator on c7000 possible?

We would like to change from port 22 to a different port on our Onboard Administrator. Is is possible? Are we asking for a big headache down the road?

Re: Change ssh port onboard administrator on c7000 possible?

This is what The onboard administrator Help says:
Enable Secure Shellâ This checkbox is selected by default. Deselecting this checkbox disables Secure Shell connections to the Onboard Administrator. SSH is disabled when Two-Factor Authentication is enabled. Disabling Two-Factor Authentication does not automatically re-enable SSH. To re-enable SSH, you must select the checkbox and then click Apply. Port 22 is used.
Enable Telnetâ This checkbox is selected by default. Deselecting this checkbox disables Telnet connections to the Onboard Administrator. Telnet is disabled when Two-Factor Authentication is enabled. Disabling Two-Factor Authentication does not automatically re-enable Telnet. To re-enable Telnet, you must select the checkbox and click Apply. Port 23 is used.

As of now SSH is only Port22 in OA.

The ability to change the ssh port number is a COMMON security procedure. I recommend that somehow this capability be added. There are too many bots that hammer port 22 out there.
