MBR Align VM and Enabling SSH

Posted on

I got real sick and tired of the left click getting stuck in my MBR Align guest, midway through a vmdk alignment. While I did see some fixes, all I really needed was SSH enabled so I could run the necessary utilities from the command line.

To enable SSH on the MBR Align Suse VM, do the following:

  1. Open the shell

  2. Enter the below command:

    sudo /etc/rc.d/./sshd start

Thats it; done.
