Custom Command won't run -- Ssh Operation failed?

Custom Command won't run -- Ssh Operation failed?

I'm running only Windows boxes.

When I run a Custom Command to change all ILO passwords (set to call cpqlocfg.exe), I get this error:

"Ssh Operation failed fo node:[insight manager server host name]

SshAuthentication Failed"

What is that all about and how do I fix it?

I'm running HPSIM 5.0.

I'm not trying to ssh to anything (I'm not familiar with UNIX).

What's going on?

Thanks. Yeah, I figured out that you have to run as the local admin account on the HPSIM server.

Strange -- this should be documented more clearly by HP. I was running it with an account that has admin privileges on the HPSIM server.
