 VSP-4850GTS SSH not working

I've set up a spare VSP4850GTS unit that we have, which is connected to a 8404 core via SPBM.
Although the VSP4850GTS has an adjacency with the core and I can ping the device, its not accepting SSH connections, despite the boot flags being set and SSH being enabled. I updated the software just in case it was a software bug, but still no luck.

I did a factory reset on the device after which the device accepted connections, but would not log in with defaults of rwa/rwa
I then added another account with rwa privileges, after which the device would not respond to SSH.

I'm puzzled as to why SSH is failing, is there another command I'm missing?

Below are relevant snips from the VSP's config

# box type             : VSP-4850GTS
