Currently we are working on a project that requires couple of Admins to SSH into a CVM to execute some commands.
The problem we are running into is that only the Nutanix\Admin default account can actually SSH into CVMs. Other non-default admin accounts (Cluster Admin) can do everything in Prism but are denied access when they try to SSH.
Do The non-default admins need additional permissions\configurations to be able to SSH into CVMs ?

At this point in time SSH access to the CVM is limited to the user “nutanix” and “admin” as Nutanix doesn’t recommend any other user to have access to the CVMs for security reasons.
Even the “admin” user is not enabled to perform any cluster operation via ssh. This how by design is.
Cluster Admin user can have the full access of the Prism but not to the CVM
May I know why you need other admin user to access the CVM? What is your end goal?
