Disable root user remote access in Linux

Disable root remote login in Linux (SLES, CENTOS, Oracle Linux, Red Hat)

It is the best practice to disable the root remote login in Linux. Login as a system user, then login as root if it is necessarily.


[oracle@testdb01 ~]$ id
uid=1001(oracle) gid=1001(oinstall) groups=1001(oinstall),1002(dba),1003(racoper),1004(asmdba)

[oracle@testdb01 ~]$ su - root
Password:
[root@testdb01 ~]#

To do this, using following

[root@testdb01 ~]# vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Change the following to “no”

PermitRootLogin no

Restart sshd

[root@testdb01 ~]# service sshd restart
Stopping sshd:                                             [  OK  ]
Starting sshd:                                             [  OK  ]
