How do I re-enable SSH on Nexus the 1000v?

While making the mistake of trying to copy the startup configuration to the running configuration (see post: http://terenceluk.blogspot.com/2010/11/problems-copying-startup-config-to.html) I managed to have the Nexus 1000v disable SSH access. Long story short, after trying to regenerate the RSA keys and still not able to fix it, we finally found the command:

config t

ssh server enable

I’m not sure if regenerating the RSA keys was actually required but if you’re interested, the command is:

config t

ssh key rsa 2048
