View Full Version : [ubuntu] ssh-agent issues after upgrade to Jaunty

April 28th, 2009, 09:11 PM
After I upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04 my ssh keys no longer work. Permissions seem fine, .ssh is 700 and everything inside is 600. I checked my keys against a backup and they work just fine when moved to a RHEL5 box.

I noticed if I copy my private key to another file and specify it with "ssh -i" I am prompted for a passphrase and able to login as expected.

It seems something has to be wrong with ssh-agent. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

What's the output of "ssh-add -l"?

Try running ssh with the -v option to see if you can get any sense of what's going wrong. You should see a line that looks like this:

debug1: Offering public key: /home/user/.ssh/private.key
Where the filename specified is the filename of your private key. Do you see such a line? And if so, is there any kind of error message indicating a problem with the key?
