Could not install OpenSSH on Windows Server using Insight Manager

When I try to install OpenSSH remotely using HP Insight Manager every time error "SSH_BAD_API_USAGEYou must supply a valid username!" occurs. Before the instalation, system ask me about credentials and I give right windows account, so where the problem could be?

Re: Could not install OpenSSH on Windows Server using Insight Manager

It looks like the installation was successful, but the SSH public key registration for the user failed.

Reboot the server as asked by the install, and then register the user you want to use for running tools via cmdline "mxagentconfig" or via Configure->Configure or Repair Agents-> SSH configuration.
