Description of problem:
While generating sos-collector, the process fails with error:
<hostname> : Unable to connect: not a valid RSA private key file
Though the correct keys are installed. https://access.redhat.com/solutions/9194
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 8 Beta
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure ssh keys from RHEL8 to other nodes.
2. try to generate sos-collector without password
sos-collector fails to generate with error:
: Unable to connect: not a valid RSA private key file
the process should pass.
Reassigning to Jake as maintainer of sos-collector.
Jake, could you pls. ask for sos-collector component in RHEL8? I see the component in RHEL7 product only, but not in RHEL8. (and I dont know where to raise such requests :( ).
For sos-collector-1.5 you need to have the key loaded by an agent, e.g. ssh-agent.
However, this exact behavior is why we transitioned sos-collector away from paramiko as the transport since this error comes directly from paramiko not supporting the default key types in RHEL 8.
This is fixed in sos-collector-1.6
Closing as this is resolved in sos-collector-1.6 in RHEL 8, but did not make it in time for the Beta.
