I have setup an ssh key from PUMA to ARCHER as described in
but I've now forgotten my passphrase.

How can I setup a new passphrase please?

You'll just have to set up a new key - it'll mean copying it to wherever the old key was copied.

Hi Grenville,

I've tried to do that but I get permission denied errors when I try to submit a model run, even though my new passphrase works when I ssh at the command line from puma to archer. However I get the following error when I type:

cryder@puma:/home/cryder> ssh-add
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.

Is it possible that I haven't setup the ssh key correctly?

Please delete the file called environment.puma in your puma .ssh directory, logoff puma , then login again and type ssh-add..
