Usage Guidelines

  • If the storage system serves as a server in the file transfer with external systems, it supports the SFTP service only. If the storage system serves as a client, it supports both the FTP and SFTP services.
  • When the storage system uses the internal key management service, in order to improve the system reliability, it is recommended to enable the key file backup server, the internal key management service will automatically back up the key file to the server.


Modify the key file backup server configurations of the internal key management service. The new address of the SFTP server is, port number is 22, the name of the folder for storing key file is /home/InternalKey, and the username and password for logging in to the SFTP server are "admin" and "12345678" respectively.
