IBM Storage V7000 unreachable in stor2rrd after Code Upgrade of IBM (Level (build 152.23.21)

Hello Xorus Team,
please explain below - trying to reach ourt from stor2rrd server to recently upgraded IBM Storage System (V7000).
Check does not work - if I pick out the commandline from check_script which is executed - it works passwordless.
Login via ssh commandline directly works.

But: Check asks for Password - why?

[stor2rrd@machine stor2rrd]$ ./bin/ XXXXXXX

  • Hi,

    1. do you have defined an ssh identity file in storage properties? is not it DSA?

    2. you can try to switch to password authentification (latest stor2rrd 7.10+)

  • Regarding 1: yes - it's rsa
    Regarding 2: I'll give it a try and keep you posted.
  • My fault - dsa Keyfiles have been implemented - I switches to rsa and this works.
    Thnaks for you support.
