 +{{:​public:​obmvmware_cannotconnectssh.png?​direct&​800|}}
 +
 +===== Cause: =====
 +The SSH setting is disabled on the VMware ESXi host. 
 +
 +To perform a backup of guests virtual machines on a VMware host, AhsayOBM needs to login to the VMware host on ssh using the root account via port 22 (default).
 +
 +===== Resolution: =====
 +To resolve this issue:
 +
 +1. Enable SSH on the VMware using the following instructions [[https://​pubs.vmware.com/​vsphere-51/​index.jsp?​topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vcli.getstart.doc%2Fcli_jumpstart.3.6.html]]
 +
 +2. After enabling SSH verify the setup is correct by using telnet from the AhsayOBM machine, i.e. telnet {VMware_host} 22
 +
 +**Example:​** The following information will be displayed by a VMware ESXi v5.5 host if SSH is enabled in response to a telnet.
 +

 +SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.6
