Failed to configure SSH in a SUSE 9 Linux managed system

Hello:

I have installed Systems Insight Manager CMS in a Windows 2003 Sever.
I want to configure a managed system in a Suse 9 Linux.
I have installed Proliant Suport Pack in this system in order to configure SNMP and Insight Manager agent.
Now I want to configure SSH, but when i run (in CSM): mxagentconfig -a -n barbol -u root -p xxx
I get this error:
Failed to configure SSH for host based authentication Configuration failed to complete due to the following exception:
Ssh Operation failed for node:barbol.uca.es. password authentication failed:FAILED

Please, i need help. Thank

I was just assisted by Ute of HP services.
You need to turn on "passwordauthenticate = yes" on the linux client in the sshd_config file.

Its no by default.

# To disable tunneled clear text passwords, change to no here!
PasswordAuthentication no

sshd_config is in /etc/ssh I believe.

Thanks

Thank. Now it run right.
But the System Insight Manager CMS shows this system like "Unknow" (in the "type system" column).

Are there any other thing that i must do.

Re: Failed to configure SSH in a SUSE 9 Linux managed system

SNMP strings might not be set proerly.
run "./hpasm configure" from terminal and configure the string same as in HPSIM Options ->protocol settings-> "global protocol sttings". eg public. and restart the HPSMH and agents too.
then rediscover the system again in HPSIM.
then the system will be discovered proerly.

Hope this information will help you.
