You should be able to SSH into the systemvm from the cloudstack
management system (using the right private key and user root).

If you like to have access from your workstation, you can make use of
"proxycommand" if you have a recent openssh. Copy the private key from
cloudstack management to ~/.ssh/id_rsa_cloudstack

scp root@cloudstack:/var/lib/cloud/management/.ssh/id_rsa

and configure your client ssh config like, note that you must use the so
called "linklocal ip" of the router. In my case these are IPs and

$ cat .ssh/config
Host 10.100.9.* 10.100.209.*
User root
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa_cloudstack
StrictHostKeyChecking no
ProxyCommand ssh -q -o ControlPersist=no

you can simply ssh in:


So how to find the linklocal ip you may ask:

A easy way is using cs package from pip (which you will also need for
using ansible). It also has a cli interface

pip install cs

cs listRouters listall=true | grep linklocalip
