Disabling SSH configuration issues warning in ESXI 5.0


Disabling SSH configuration issues warning in 5.0

I have found this article in VMware’s knowledge base showing how to disable the warning symbol after enabling SSH on a ESXI host. This is useful if you require to keep SSH enabled in a private and secure network.

To suppress informational warnings related to SSH and ESXi shell access:

  1. Click the ESXi host in the Inventory tab.
  2. Click the Configuration tab.
  3. Under Software, click Advanced Settings.
  4. Click UserVars.
  5. Change the value of UserVars.SuppressShellWarning to 1.
  6. Click OK.

Note: This parameter is included with ESXi/ESX 4.1 update 2 and ESXi 5.0.
