Issue/Introduction

If the primary SpectroSERVER (SS) process fails and OneClick (OC) fails over to the secondary SS, when a user runs an SSH from a model in the OC console, the source ip used for the SSH session is the source ip of the primary SS and not the secondary SS.

Cause

The Spectrum telnetd process is a relay host for all the OC telnet and SSH sessions. If the telnetd is still running on the primary SS system when the primary SS application is down, OC will use the telnetd running on the primary SS system.

If the telnetd is not running on the primary SS system, OC will use the telnetd running on the secondary SS system.

Environment

Release : Any

Component : Spectrum OneClick

Resolution

This is functioning as designed.
