Hello Chahid,

The ssh xmod has to be loaded individually. Since you have the same image on both the primary and secondary you can simply boot into the secondary image and the ssh xmod will load automatically.

Hi chahid,

You could also try to use EXOS 16.2, 21.x, or 22.x.
It is because that starting in EXOS 16.2, 21.x and 22.x the SSH module is integrated into the standard EXOS image.

As stated by Patrick, boot the switch to the secondary partition and check the status of the SSH access is Enabled in "show management".

In case, if it isn't Enabled. Execute the command "run update" and then "enable ssh2" and check the SSH access.
