account1#ssh account2@server1
account2@server1 password:

=============================
debug2: key: /home/wedbprod/.ssh/hrwedb (00000000)
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password,keyboard-interactive
debug3: start over, passed a different list publickey,password,keyboard-interactive
debug3: preferred publickey,keyboard-interactive,password
debug3: authmethod_lookup publickey
debug3: remaining preferred: keyboard-interactive,password
debug3: authmethod_is_enabled publickey
debug1: Next authentication method: publickey

What does the server1's log say?

It seems to be sending every key it can find,
with no success.

> [...] fro other account it working...

And what does "ssh -v [...]" tell you there?
(I assume that that's how you got the "debug"
output shown above.)

If this stuff works from one account but not
another, then I'd guess that there are
differences in the "~/.ssh" directories for
the two accounts.

As usual, it might help to see the actual
commands used, and their actual output.
Hiding details ("account1", "server1", [...])
is not helpful.

If your ssh setup is coorrect please check for world or group writable home directories...

Re: ssh & sftp is not working for the particular account with out pw

1. On ssh client, create a public/private key pair for the user account:
client$ ssh-keygen â t rsa
Keep a blank passphrase.
Public (id_rsa.pub) and private (id_rsa) keys are generated in a directory called '.ssh'in user's home directory.
client$ ll ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

2. Copy the clientâ s id_rsa.pub public key file to the SSH server.

3. Create a ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the server to store clientsâ public keys:
server$ touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
server$ chown user ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
server$ chmod 644 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

4. Append authorized clientâ s public key to the userâ s authorized_keys on the server:
server$cat id_rsa.pub >>~/.ssh/authorized_keys

5. Test the client/user authentication
client$ ssh -v user1@myserver

Re: ssh & sftp is not working for the particular account with out pw

another thing you can try is to start the sshd on the AIX box in debug, using a different port than normal, as in:

/usr/sbin/sshd -ddd -p

then on the hp side, attempt the login again. you will have to specify the same port as used above, as in:

ssh -p user2@server1

this should allow you to get debugging on the server side without interfering with everyone else's logins
