Make sure your PC is connected to the same network as all of the VAST Cluster compute servers (CNodes).
Establish a Secure Shell (SSH) connection to the management IP of any CNode in the cluster.
For first time connection, you can use the management VIP that you provided during installation. This is the IP used to connect to the VAST Cluster management server.
In the VAST Web UI, you can find all CNode Management IPs listed in the the Management IP column of the CNodes tab in the Infrastructure page.
You are prompted to log into the CNode.
For first time login, use the OS (Linux) user credentials for CNode.
Refer to Managing VAST Cluster Passwords for the OS (Linux) user credentials.
The VAST-OS prompt is displayed.
At the VAST-OS prompt, Run the /vast/data/vms.sh vcli command to access the CLI.
To run the CLI for the first time and log in with the factory default VMS user account:
/vast/data/vms.sh vcli -u admin -p 123456
For full command options, see VAST CLI Running Options.
VAST Cluster has one factory default VMS user account. You cannot delete the factory default VMS user account or reduce its permissions. After first time login, you can change the password for the default VMS user, create additional VMS users, and/or configure role based access with LDAP groups. For all options, see Authorizing VMS Access and Permissions.
The CLI welcome text and prompt appears.
