Linux PSP via SIM - deploy/configure repair agents

Hello,

I am attempting to install to Linux PSP via the SIM sever and I am seeing the following error message within target details.

"Configuring SSH authentication (START)...
Configure SSH for host based authentication (DONE).................. [FAILED]
Configuration failed to complete due to the following exception:
Could not access the file or directory sshd_config.orig on the target system"

Why is SIM looking for this file?

I have setup / enabled privilege elevation sudo)

SIM: Operating system: Windows 2003
Version: Systems Insight Manager 5.3 - Windows

TEST HOST:
OS - RHEL4u6 (2.6.9-67.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Nov 7 13:56:44 EST 2007 x86_64)
mgmt protocols - SSH:SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_3.9p1

Hi,
Found following information here:
http://h10018.www1.hp.com/wwsolutions/misc/hpsim-helpfiles/readme-53.txt

2.1 Authentication

On a Linux or ESX system, you might receive the following error when
running the mxagentconfig command or through Replicate Agent Settings:

Configuration failed to complete due to the following exception: Could not
access the file or directory sshd_config.orig on the target system
esxhost1. Remote system reported following error message: Permission
denied. Check whether the directory or file exists or whether the user has
the operating system permission to access it.

You must manually change the permissions on the file to 644

Thanks,

I have changed the premssions to 644 as stated in the doc, but I am still seeing the same error.

Linux agent installation does not support privilege elevation at this time. You have to use the root or a privileged user to do the installation

The message that you have attached does not seem to be coming from the Linux agent installation. It is the result of the SSH configuration.


When you select Agent installation, uncheck all the options in the COnfiure page.

You have to set those permissions on sshd_config as well.
