Generate a SSH Key for Panorama on OCI

Generate a SSH key for initial connection for the Panorama™ virtual appliance installed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
To connect to the Panorama™ virtual appliance installed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), you must generate a public and private SSH key on a Linux machine. You use the generated SSH key to log in to the Panorama CLI to set up a new administrative password and configure the Panorama network settings.
A Linux machine is required to generate the SSH key and access the Panorama CLI for the initial configuration. Generating a SSH from OCI or third-party applications such as PuTTygen is not supported.
  1. Open the terminal on your Linux machine.
  2. Navigate to the hidden
    .ssh
    directory.
    admin:~$
    cd ~/.ssh
  3. Generate an SSH key in the
    .ssh
    directory.
    admin:~/.ssh$
    ssh-keygen
    When prompted, save the key in the default
    .ssh
    directory. A password for the key is optional.
    The default name for the private key is
    id_rsa
    and the default name for the public key is
    id_rsa.pub
    .
  4. Copy the public key from the
    .ssh
    directory to your home directory.
    This step is required to upload the public key to OCI.
    admin: ~/.ssh$
    cp id_rsa.pub ~
