Integrity 4640 SSH access to MPE

I have an Integrity 4640 (HP-UX 11.23). The ilo/mpe has a valid license. The ilo/mpe was configured on installation to allow ssh and web-ssl access on default ports. Telnet disabled. This configuration is over two years old.

Recently ssh access to the ilo/mpe fails. If I enable telnet access and regenerate the ssh keys, ssh is availble. When I disable telnet access, ssh also fails.

Re: Integrity 4640 SSH access to MPE

What it suppose to mean "ssh fails"?
Can you provide more details as in what exactly is happening and error/messages? Have you tried ssh debug i.e. ssh -vvv to get more insight?

What version of SSH client you are using and what's the version of MP f/w installed?

Re: Integrity 4640 SSH access to MPE

The log SmartTerm ssh client:

Received disconnect: 10: Protocol error.
Connection closed by 172.16.82.144.
Putty simply state: Protocol Error.

The session is then disconnected.

MPE Firmware: 04.10.

As stated above, this has been working for over two years. MPE has been restarted.
HP is planning to replace the MPE module.

Re: Integrity 4640 SSH access to MPE

The version 4.10 is the system firmware. The MP firmware would be like E.xx.xx. You can find it using MP>CM>SYSREV

Anyway, this might be a MP firmware issue. Per the release notes of iLO MP E.03.32 available at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=88837&swItem=ux-58871-1&prodNameId=346361&swEnvOID=54&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=5

SSH relevant issue fixed are

"SSH connection to the MP will no longer fail if SNMP is disabled and there are no active telnet sessions. "

SSH connections can now be made from HP-UX SSH 4.4.

Maybe one of the above is relevant in your situation. You may want to verify them.
