Scidb 13.6 ssh failure during initall


#1

I was installing scidb 13.6 on ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 from binary package. Initialization step failed with message "ssh failure: server=localhost port=22 Authentication failed."
Do I need to provide some key file, and how?
Thanks.

./scidb.py initall db
ssh failure: server=localhost port=22 Authentication failed.
# Use globals sshPort, keyFilenameList
def sshconnect(srv):
	sshc = paramiko.SSHClient()
	sshc.set_missing_host_key_policy(paramiko.AutoAddPolicy())
	try:
		sshc.connect(srv[1],port=sshPort,key_filename=keyFilenameList,timeout=10)
	except Exception, s:
		print "ssh failure: server=%s port=%d %s" % (srv[1], sshPort, s)
		sys.exit(1)
	# end try
	return sshc
# end def sshconnect

if d.get('key-file-list'):
	keyFilenameList = d.get('key-file-list').split(',')
# end if

Hi,

Did you set up the password-less ssh configuration? See SciDB User Guide page 18.

Yes. You are right. Many thanks.
