ssh passkey problems, vn7.3

Reported by: sws04jc Owned by: ros
Component: FCM Keywords: ssh agent

UM Version: 7.3

Description

Hello,

I'm attempting to submit a 7.3 job for the first time. My ext.out file informs me that the ssh passkey is not being accepted on Hector, so the job fails.

I have indeed followed the step-by-step instructions provided here:
http://puma.nerc.ac.uk/trac/UM_TUTORIAL/wiki/Ros/sshAgent
In fact I've repeated these steps several times. I can confirm that ssh agent is running in my puma session. I can also confirm that the passkeys have copied to my hector account.

Any ideas?

I realise that this has been a common problem, so I've trawled the helpdesk for previous entries and suggested solutions. I think I've tried them all, plus I've has some help from Willie, but I'm still stuck (hence this ticket).

Thanks in advance for your help,

Jeff Chagnon

Hi Jeff,

It'll be easier if I pop down and have a look rather than send emails back and forth. I'll be down in about 10 minutes, if that's ok.

Cheers,
Ros.

This ticket is now being closed.

For reference, the problem of the passkeys not working was tracked down to the permissions of the user $HOME directory.

If the $HOME directory has write permission set for either group or other (E.g drwxrwxrwx) then ssh passkeys will not work.
