ssh question

Friends,

While i do an ssh to another machine as root i can do everything perfectly. But when i try it as oracle user, here is the output.

/home/oracle> ssh hp01
ssh: hp01: host nor service provided, or not known
/home/oracle>

Anybody has an input.

Thanks.

Re: ssh question

Shalom,

No hostname resolution as the oracle user?

Thats rather unusual.

Checklist:
sshd_config
ssh_config
perhaps there is an entry on one or both machines preventing ssh.

Perhaps there is no oracle user on host hp01.

As root, try this

ssh oracle@hp01

If that works, the issue is environment or configuration.

On the target host:
tail -f /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Then ssh to it. See if anything shows up on the log. If there is information it is likely to be helpful in the diagnosis.

Re: ssh question

As root it asks for the password.

root@hp01:/etc# ssh oracle@hp02
Password:

Re: ssh question

You are ssh'ing to hp01 or hp02 since the command you used in your last post is "ssh oracle@hp02" instead of "ssh oracle@hp01" ??

Re: ssh question

There was a bug in some older versions of openssh that caused this issue.

http://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=239

It's been resolved in more recent versions of openssh.
