Grant the Root user SSH access.

Granting SSH access to the Root user is not recommended from the security point of view. But, when you are in a secured environment you can safely enable the SSH access for the Root user.

  1. Login on your physical server as Root user.
  2. Type: #vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
  3. Find the PermitRootLogin value in the file and change it from no to yes“. Save the file.
  4. Restart the sshd service by typing: #service sshd restart

You can now use your favorite SSH client to login to your ESX server.
