Shutting down the SSH service

Shutting down the SSH (Secure Socket Handling) service will forcibly disconnect all SSH sessions running on a switch.

You must be in global configuration mode to shut down the SSH service on a switch.

The SSH service runs by default.
To shut down the SSH service on a switch, enter ssh server shutdown.
switch(config)# ssh server shutdown
switch(config)#

All SSH sessions are immediately terminated, and cannot be re-established until the service is re-enabled.

NOTE
If you are in VCS mode, you must enter RBridge ID configuration mode before issuing the command.
switch(config)# rbridge-id 3
switch(config-rbridge-id-3)# ssh server shutdown 
switch(config-rbridge-id-3)#
