Deploy/Install RPMS/Custom commands in a root SSH restricted access linux environment


Hi,

We're experiencing some problems with HP SIM and conection to some systems with SSH.

A lot of customers want to close SSH root access, so we need to access to the machine with another user and use "su -" to become in root user.

How can we access to this machines with that restriction?

SSH keys?

All ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Regards, David

root access is a requirement for this feature.

Thank you for your response David but my question is not about if root access is or not mandatory, my question is about "How can I access with ssh root restrictions like root user?"

For example: If SSHs host keys jump over this restriction could be helpful, if HP SIM has some option to do this "su -" action, It could be helpful too :).

I know other programs can do things like those :).

Anyway, many thanks for your help.

No, you cannot use a regular account to access (which is why I said root was required) and then escalate privileges through su or sudo or the like.

Ok, thank you. I must think about other way to do that (Disable temporaly this restrictions or something like this).

Thank you very much for your help.
