- [Voiceover] In this video I'll demonstrate…how to stop and start services on and ESXI host…for security purposes.…We'll be using the VMWare hands on lab environment…to complete this demonstration…using vSphere with operations management six lab.…We'll begin by navigating to hosts and clusters.…And here you can see I have two ESXI hosts,…ESXI zero one A and zero two A.…I'll choose ESXI zero two A.…And under settings, we'll look for the security profile…of this ESXI host.…
Under security profile there's a number of options…that we can configure,…such as the onboard firewall.…Services that are running on this ESXI host,…and lockdown mode.…Let's focus on the services that are currently running…on this ESXI host.…I'm going to choose edit,…and let's take a look at the SSH service.…On this ESXI host the SSH service is currently running.…This means we should be able to connect…to this ESXI host directly using SSH.…
I'm watching Putty, my SSH tool…and we're going to try to connect…to this ESXI host.…And here we can see our attempts to connect is successful.…
