ILOM Firmware Does Not Allow Loopback SSH Access

(Doc ID 2320698.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2018

Applies to:

Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.1.1 and later
Linux x86-64


ssh to loopback address doesn't work:

[root@ovcamn05r1 ~]# ssh root@
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out
[root@ovcamn05r1 ~]#

We can ping the loopback address:

[root@ovcamn05r1 ~]# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.709 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.568 ms


 ILOM firmware is upgraded to a release newer than 3.2.4.
