SCP (secure copy) to a VMware vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA)

I recently found a very helpful guideline from Mark Ukotic in his blog.

For some this may be a rare situation but from time to time I find that I’m needing to copy files to and from a vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA).  I had one of these situations recently on vCenter 6. I needed to move some log files off a VCSA box.

I’ve found the easiest way to do this is via SCP — Secure Copy, which uses the SSH protocol.  It’s a relatively simple process to enable the VCSA to accept SCP connections.  It’s a two step process which first requires enabling SSH on the VCSA and then switching the default Shell.

Minimal Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Enable SSH on the appliance, if you changed the default.
  2. Login via SSH: ssh [email protected]
  3. Type your root password (often the same PW as your vCenter admin)
  4. shell.set –enabled True
  5. shell
  6. chsh -s /bin/bash root
  7. chsh -s /bin/appliancesh root

Please visit Mark´s blog to view the complete article! You can find an abstract below.
