Logging In to a FusionSphere OpenStack Node

Logging In to a FusionSphere OpenStack Node

After Secure Shell (SSH) security hardening is performed on a node, SSH-based password authentication is disabled for logins. In this case, use PuTTY and the required private key to log in to a target node.


  • SSH security hardening has been performed on the target node. Security hardening measures include:
    • SSH key pair authentication mode has been enabled and the public key certificate has been configured on the node.
    • SSH password authentication has been disabled.
  • You have obtained the private key certificate that matches the public key certificate. If the private key certificate is encrypted, you also need to obtain the password of the private key certificate.

    To obtain the default private key certificate, perform the following:

    Visit and log in the system. Enter FusionSphere default public and private keys in the search box in the upper-right corner of the web page. Click the first result to obtain the default public and private key certificate.


  1. On the local PC, check whether PuTTY was used before to log in to a node in key pair authentication mode.

    • If yes, go to 7.
    • If no or if you are not sure, go to 2.

  2. Run PuTTY and enter the IP address of the target node and the SSH port number (default value: 22).
  3. In the Category area in the left pane, choose Connection > SSH > Auth.

    The SSH authentication configuration page is displayed.

  4. Click Browse, select the prepared private key certificate in the displayed window, and click Open.

    The file name extension of the private key certificate is *.ppk. The default private key certificate is id_rsa.ppk, which can be obtained from the version release path.

    The following figure shows the SSH authentication configuration page.

    Figure 6-20 Configuring the private key certificate

  5. In the Category area in the left pane, select Session.

    The main page is displayed.

  6. To facilitate subsequent access, create a custom session in Saved Sessions and click Save.

    The following figure shows the session configuration page.

    After this step, go to 8.

    • To obtain the IP address (for example, to type into the Host Name (or IP address) box, perform the following: In the LLD file generated by FCD, search for Reverse-Proxy, and find the IP address corresponding to the external_api network plane. This IP address is the IP address of the FusionSphere OpenStack node.

  7. Select a saved session and click Load.
  8. Click Open.
  9. Enter the username for logging in to the target node as prompted.

    If the in-use private key certificate is encrypted, you also need to enter its password.

    The default private key certificate is encrypted. The default password is Huawei@CLOUD8!.

    • The default username of the FusionSphere OpenStack node is fsp, and the default password is Huawei@CLOUD8.
    • Ensure that username fsp is used to establish the connection. Then, run the su command to switch to user root. The default password is Huawei@CLOUD8!.
    • Switch to user root, and import environment variables by following the instructions in Importing Environment Variables.
