UXMON: SSHD Daemon is not running or not doing it properly, please check

Node : solaris.setaoffice.com
Node Type : Sun SPARC (HTTPS)
Severity : normal
OM Server Time: 2016-09-10 08:03:10
Message : UXMON: SSHD Daemon is not running or not doing it properly, please check
Msg Group : OS
Application : sshd_mon
Object : sshd
Event Type :
not_found

Instance Name :
not_found

Instruction : It has been detected an SSH installation but the SSHD is not running
Please check SSH status, because it might happen also there are still some ssh spawned processes running but the father has died.

Note that if the SSH is not available this might prevent users log in the server and even impact some applications.

HPOM is complaining that ssh is not running but obviously is running because you’re connected to the server using ssh

echo 8047 > /var/run/sshd.pid
