    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?

     

    Thanks

    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
