  • 1.  ESXI SSHD_CONFIG PERMISSIONS

    Posted Jun 30, 2022 03:09 PM

    My organization recently updated to 7.0.3 update D for our ESXI hosts and since then 3 out of our 11 hosts will not allow me to edit, move,  delete or do anything to the SSHD_CONFIG file in my hosts. I have tried to chmod, chown and just delete the file straight up and create a new one from a backup but anytime i try to mess with that file i get an action not permitted message. Does anybody have a fix for this?

    We are having the same issue, any ideas on how to modify the read-only sshd_config file?

    Having the same issue.  Did anyone get a resolution for this?  I am currently unable to ssh into this host.

    Yes. In my case I removed the VIB STIG on each ESXi host. It is no longer needed when securing ESXi v7 or greater. The necessary STIG controls can almost be entirely done through the vShpere/ESXi GUI interfaces.

    Removing the VIB STIG worked.
