Log in to the Linux shell using SSH

You may need to log in to the Linux shell to administer your ThoughtSpot cluster.

To perform basic administration such as checking network connectivity, starting and stopping services, and setting up email, sign in remotely as the Linux administrator user "admin". To sign in with SSH from a client machine, you can use the command shell or a utility like Putty.

In the following procedure, replace <hostname_or_IP> with the hostname or IP address of a node in ThoughtSpot. The default SSH port (22) will be used.

  1. Sign in to a client machine and open a command prompt.

  2. Issue the SSH command, specifying the IP address or hostname of the ThoughtSpot instance:

     ssh admin@<hostname_or_IP>
  3. Enter the password for the admin user.
