SSH to the primary management server

  • 1.  SSH to the primary management server

    Hi there,
    I have two management servers in HA mode but I can not access directly to the primary server via ssh.
    currently I can only ssh to the primary management server through the secondary server under admin mode.
    So is it possible to ssh directly to the primary server? or maybe I have to reset the admin password on the primary server?

    Hello Tho Nguyen,

    Thank you for posting your question here on Imperva Community.

    Since it is unknown whether this is a newly MX-HA deployment, nor the characteristics of the situation, please use the following info in order to mitigate the situation:
    1. Make sure required ports are open on both members: 
    2. Verify which node is indeed the Active one, by running the following CLI command on both nodes - impctl server ha status

    In case the issue persist, I would advise to raise a case with our Technical Support team, for a better troubleshooting.
