Description (partial)

If "feature scp-server" is enabled, only the admin user can log into the CGR. 

With "feature sftp-server" enabled (which uses the SSHd mechanism), only the "admin" user account can be used to log into the CGR. When using a valid set of credentials that exist in the AAA server, no other user can be used. This means that the "admin" user account has to be replicated in the external AAA database which may violate some company's security policy since it is a "known" username and some AAA servers treat this account differently than others.

The normal SSH process allows valid AAA user credentials.
