You can log in to the SP of a node from an administration host to perform node management tasks remotely.
The following conditions must be met:
To access the SP, your user account must have been created with the -application parameter of the security login create command set to service-processor and the -authmethod parameter set to password.
If the SP is configured to use an IPv4 or IPv6 address, and if five SSH login attempts from a host fail consecutively within 10 minutes, the SP rejects SSH login requests and suspends the communication with the IP address of the host for 15 minutes. The communication resumes after 15 minutes, and you can try to log in to the SP again.
Data ONTAP prevents you from creating or using system-reserved names (such as "root" and "naroot") to access the cluster or the SP.
