Remote console/ SSH questions
I've got two questions about remote console and SSH.
In the web interface of NexentaStor there is an option called "Console". When I click this option I'm expecting to see a SSH-like console (CLI). However, I'm getting the message "this session no longer exists" instead. Is this an enterprise option or do I need to enable this somewhere?
When I login with Putty (SSH) to Nexenta, the login procedure is very slow. After entering username and password, there is a time-out for a minute or so. Once logged in, everything works flawlessly. I suspect DNS lookup has something to do with it. I read on several sites that I need to alter the sshd_config file in some way. However, I don't exactly know what.
Can someone help me with this?
Thanks in advance!

This kind of sounds like a new install... I see those things if i don't reboot after the initial wizard configs.
Have you rebooted since install? Also if you config'ed naming, like auth to ad, check that your connections are good

after setting the right DNS server and checking IP settings, this solved the above mentioned problems.
However, I'm still curious about why this happens and if DNS checking can be disabled (I want as less dependencies as possible)?

It is possible do disable name-resolving in /etc/ssh/ssd_config, but solaris-ssh has some bug, that does not allow to disable name-resolving. :-)
The bug already fixed in illumos-gate and will be available in NS-4.x. I do not know about backporting it to 3.x.
