Changing an Environment User using the GUI
- Log into the Delphix Admin application using Delphix Admin credentials.
- Select Manage > Environments.
- In the Environments panel, click on the name of an environment to open the environment information screen.
- Under Basic Information, click the green Plus icon to add a user.
Enter the Username and Password for the OS user in that environment.
If you want to Use Public Key Encryption, complete the following procedure:
- Select Public Key for the Login Type, and then click View Public Key.
- Copy the public key that is displayed, and append it to the end of your
~/.ssh/authorized_keysfile. If this file does not exist, you will need to create it.
You can also add public key authentication to an environment user's profile by using the command line interface, as explained in the topic CLI Cookbook: Setting Up SSH Key Authentication for UNIX Environment Users
Note: If ~/.ssh/authorized_keys, ~/.ssh or ~ (the user's home directory) are writable by other users other than the Delphix Enviroment User, sshd will not allow public key authentication. The following are examples of permissions which conform to sshd's allowable permission convention:
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys- assign read/write privileges for your user.
Run chmod 700 ~/.ssh - assign read/write/execute privileges for your user.
chmod 755 ~- assign home directory writable only by your user.
The public key needs to be added only once per user and per environment.
- Click the Check icon to save your new user.
- Click the Pencil icon next to Environment Users to change the primary user for this environment.
- Click the Trash Can icon next to a username to delete that user.
