Dear WD Community
I’m new to your products (this is work related) so please be kind in case the answer to my question seems obvious to you. I found some similar threads but they didn’t solve my problem.
WD Firmware 2.21.119
I use an ssh connection to store some backup files. I already dealt with the old openssh version (5) and the deprecated dsa keys. So I got access through ssh by entering the password. For several reasons I would rather prefer entering via ssh key. I did all the usual ssh stuff (creating key, adding to authorized_keys, set permissions, etc.) but then my problems started.
First of all I was wondering why the ssh files are stored at /etc/ssh/ and not in /root/.ssh/.
Second, I couldn’t restart ssh by “sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart” or “sudo service ssh restart”, both resulting in “command not found”. So I tried rebooting…
Third, everything I changed in that location gets reseted as soon as I reboot, probably also on other triggers. I also tried to set up everything in /root/.ssh but the same problem, actually the root directory gets emptied entirely every time. I guess this is intended.
So, I am kind of stuck at this point not knowing how to do this ssh configs which are done smoothly on other linux systems.
Thanks in advance for any kind of help, I really appreciate it!
