In the "Working with System VMs" section of the Admin Guide, there is no "Accessing System
VMs" section. There should be one, similar to the "Accessing VMs" section in the earlier "Working
with Virtual Machines" section. You can access system VMs through the UI, in the Infrastructure
tab. You can also ssh in, using the following techniques.

To access a system VM directly over the network, use one of the following techniques, depending
on the hypervisor.

XenServer or KVM:

SSH in by using the link local IP address of the system VM. For example, in the command below,
substitute your own path to the private key used to log in to the system VM and your own link
local IP.

Run the following command on the XenServer or KVM host on which the system VM is present:

# ssh -i <private-key-path> <link-local-ip> -p 3922

Now you can run commands on the system VM. For example, to check the software version:

# cat /etc/cloudstack-release

The output should be like the following:

Cloudstack Release 4.0 Mon Feb 6 15:10:04 PST 2013

ESXi:

SSH in using the private IP address of the system VM. For example, in the command below, substitute
your own path to the private key used to log in to the system VM and your own private IP.

Run the following command on the Management Server:

# ssh -i <private-key-path> <private-ip> -p 3922

Now you can run commands on the system VM. For example, to check the software version:

# cat /etc/cloudstack-release

The output should be like the following:

Cloudstack Release 4.0 Mon Feb 6 15:10:04 PST 2013
