Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18649
ssh-add does not work for DSA keys
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
I generated a new key with keygen -d (openssh-2.1.1p4-1) and then my
ssh-agent does not
accept that key with the following (strange) error:
(0)hazel:~% ssh-add .ssh/id_dsa
Bad key file .ssh/id_dsa: Success
Additional note: I resolved the problem by upgrading to openssh-2.2.0p1. I
discovered that _before_
doing the upgrade to rh7 I had the 2.2.0 package installed and working;
strangely enough, the
upgrade process did downgrade my version of openssh.
My DSA connections are working ok with 2.2.0 (client and server).
OK. Solved with the update.
