Open an SSH connection to a cluster

You can use any SSH client such as OpenSSH or PuTTY to connect to an Isilon cluster.

Before you begin

You must have valid OneFS credentials to log in to a cluster after the connection is open.


  1. Open a secure shell (SSH) connection to any node in the cluster, using the IP address of the node and port number 22.
  2. Log in with your OneFS credentials.

    At the OneFS command line prompt, you can use isi commands to monitor and manage your cluster.
