Register an Ubuntu SSO account
If you have already had an SSO account, you can skip this step and move to the next. The account is used for console-conf in the following steps.
- An Ubuntu SSO account is required to set up a user profile. A user needs to create an Ubuntu SSO account before using Ubuntu Core 16. To create an Ubuntu SSO account, go to [https://login.ubuntu.com]
- Complete account verification
- Create a SSH Key This step is only necessary if you don’t have an SSH key on your system. - On your Ubuntu desktop, here is how you would create it:
$ mkdir ~/.ssh
$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
You will be prompted for a location to save the keys, and a passphrase for the keys. This passphrase will protect your private key while it’s stored on the hard drive:
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/home/b/.ssh/id_rsa):
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
Your identification has been saved in /home/b/.ssh/id_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /home/b/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
Your public key is now available as
.ssh/id_rsa.pub in your home folder.
- For Window users, please refer to the following link about how to generate SSH key: [https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/generating-rsa-keys-with-ssh-puttygen].
- Import SSH Key
Clicking “SSH keys" on the left side shows the following screen. You can now just copy and paste the content of
id_rsa.pub file into the field. Confirm your ssh key by clicking on “Import SSH key”.
