Re: OneView 3.0: Connection to remote backup location fails

Yes, the ssh host key from the backup target is used. Using a wrong key generates different errors.

Re: OneView 3.0: Connection to remote backup location fails

A brief update regarding this issue:

HPE support has confirmed this issue. It's documented in a new Customer Advisor:

Advisory: HPE OneView 3.X - Remote Backup Setup Will Fail with a Connection Timed Out Message If the Password Prompt Is Not In Lowercase Letters

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-a00027753en_us&hprpt_id=HPGL_ALERTS_1984023&jumpid=em_alerts_us-us_Sep17_xbu_all_all_1280645_1984023_ServersEnterpriseSoftware_recommended__/

If the linux/unix system returns something like "Password" (starting with an uppercase letter), OneView will not recognize this and finaly a timeout will ocure.

Hopefully, this will be fixed in an future release, since customzing the prompt message is not possible for all linux versions.

Re: OneView 3.0: Connection to remote backup location fails

Hi.

Im having the same issue. Oneview 3.1.

I have checked the advisory mentioned above and that is not an issue.  "password" is all lowercase.

I can SCP to my backup target using the username and password used in the backup settings.

I think this has not been solved.
