Please note this is for UNIX Environment Users

1. Get the current system public key:



delphix > system get sshPublicKey

        ssh-rsa
AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAQEAse1M7uJX44lVPBljhnxB6MZUTx8VF6cupaVATg120lQonIqx29lP+Mwp0AWh7C983IDoYDo+AY7RXpcFP9nKksiJnGSGiK6wo9RIiqSnF1x/VXNkTt2/67RVofoiui4W5fuxD4hOIvoTr47Bg1hh9L6nhP0tnUvS/rusHFJ+ogxGHm46mwNlgUJUGmLTNao+W0YU693HRLukEch01t4k6olVGaC0eLjYlgBf0Z5XiIcBX6ZWqVHAhwMinVjAvmfQhirAgCI7gYrd5/PwNl/DC8xyhWuxd2jgA7sSPeRqWY0JHt/xcmdpIaPxTwtxQLKTnPxrFrQd+l4uf6LKxr5g7w== root@delphix


2. Add this key (starting with ssh-rsa) to the remote user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file. You will need to get access to this file using an alternate authentication mechanism (such as logging in as the user with a password, or logging in as an administraor).


3. Create a new environment user:


delphix > environment

delphix environment > user create


4. Set the user environment and name:


delphix environment user create * > set environment=environment1

delphix environment user create * > set name=username


5. Set the user credential type to SystemKeyCredential:


delphix environment user create * > set credential.type=SystemKeyCredential


6. Commit the results:


delphix environment user create * > commit
