I generated a build using Balena yocto project for the device: npe-x500-m3. After generating the build, I used balena cli to configure the network and the hostname(basegateway). After writing the image to the device storage, I can see the device is up and can ping to it.
$ ping basegateway PING basegateway.localdomain (192.168.178.111) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from basegateway.fritz.box (192.168.178.111): icmp_seq=9 ttl=128 time=2.75 ms 64 bytes from basegateway.fritz.box (192.168.178.111): icmp_seq=10 ttl=128 time=1.89 ms 64 bytes from basegateway.fritz.box (192.168.178.111): icmp_seq=11 ttl=128 time=1.78 ms
However, ssh fails. I tried the following:
$ balena ssh basegateway
$ balena ssh basegateway.local
both ending into the same result(Fleet or device not found).
I can ssh into the device if I use the add device function from my balena dashboard and download a preconfigured build. I have following questions:
- How do I ssh into the balena OS which is generated by building an image from the Balena yocto prject. Is there something I can configure in the Yocto project?
- Where in meta-balena is config.json generated and can I add ssh-keys before triggering the build so that generated image already has my ssh keys?
- Also, how do I add this device into the fleet on my dashboard? The only option I can see is either I download a preconfigured image or the config.json file.
