You can use authorized keys to log in to a host with SSH. You can upload authorized keys with a vifs command.

Authorized keys allow you to authenticate remote access to a host. When users or scripts try to access a host with SSH, the key provides authentication without a password. With authorized keys you can automate authentication, which is useful when you write scripts to perform routine tasks.

You can upload the following types of SSH keys to a host:

Authorized keys file for root user

DSA key

DSA public key

RSA key

RSA public key


Do not modify the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.

At the command line, use the vifs command to upload the SSH key to appropriate location.

vifs --server hostname --username username --put filename /host/ssh_host_dsa_key_pub
