I need a local user that can SSH to the appliance that does not launch the SSG configuration menu. Don't won't to use root either. I created the user and granted the user the permissions I want using visudo but when I SSH to the appliance with that user I still get the menu. Is there anyway to disable that menu for this user?
Found the answer and it is pretty simple, just have a .bash_profile that does not launch the menu.
It's not recommended to change the default behavior of user ssgconfig.
Another option is to configure ssh to allow a new user, but also not recommended due to security concern (particularly on prod env)
1. vi /etc/ssh/ssh_allowed_users, add the new user name
2. service sshd restart
