Answer

Because Cluster Switch Health Monitor (CSHM) collects Cluster Switch banner information using SSH session.

  • If a cluster switch is configured network settings by Reference Configuration file (RCF), it appears RCF version information on Login banner.
  • This SSH session gets the RCF version information only.
  • The function can not be disabled.
  • It does not affect a storage system and cluster switch, therefore it is ignorable.

Note: CSHM settings do not have SSH options however, CSHM performs SSH sessions to a Cluster Switch.
