Reset SSH Key

Post by StarScream » 02 Mar 2018 15:51

Hi!

I have implemented a management VRF. To connect to other switches via the management interface, I like to initiate the ssh session from the switch. However, in one case, I accidentally did not say (yes) to trust the fingerprint of the host. I no longer get the option and can not initiate a session to that switch. How can I reset this?

The switch I'm connecting to is running AOS 6. I think one of the options would be to generate a new key on it. Does anyone have information on how to accomplish that? Or how I would go about resetting the trust in ssh client on my AOS 8 switch?

Thanks!

Hi, not sure.... but you can try to delete all the RSA/DSA-keys within the network-folder. Maybe you have to reboot the switch to have affect.

I'll double check the network folders. I found keys in the system folder, but didnt notice any in the network folders on AOS 8.

You are correct. There where a changing between R6 to R7/R8 with this location. Have you tested to delete this keys?
