After a regular user logs on to the Bastionhost console as a Resource Access Management (RAM) user, the user can go to a web page to perform O&M operations on hosts. The user does not need to use an SSH, Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), or SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) client. This topic describes how to use the host O&M feature.

Limits

  • Only Bastionhost HA Edition supports the host O&M feature.
  • You can use the host O&M feature only after you log on to the Bastionhost console as a RAM user.

Preparations

  1. Create a RAM user and import the user. For more information, see Create RAM users and import them.
    Note If you have created a RAM user, import the created RAM user. For more information, see Import a created RAM user.
  2. Add a host. For more information, see Add hosts.
    Note If you want to manage host accounts in Bastionhost, you can create an account for a host. For more information, see Create an account for hosts.
  3. Authorize the host for the RAM user. For more information, see Authorize hosts by user and Authorize users to manage host groups.
