OpenSSH fails to start
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
/etc/init.d/openssh start dies with:
Starting sshd:execvp: No such file or directory
Start SSH vi /etc/init.d/openssh start
SSH doesn't start
This is from a Custom installation with the default groups selected.
I believe this is probably because sshd is started as 'sshd' not /usr/sbin/sshd, and root's path
does not, for some reason, contain /usr/sbin.
There seems to be a new 'setup' package recently which changelog shows something that probably
fixed the problem, whatever it was.
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
Are you certain this is the version of the package included in RHL? The init
script uses the full path (/usr/sbin/sshd) when starting the server process, and
it's named "sshd" and not "openssh"....
It was a stock install on a clean disk, but the problem seems to be fixed now.
O-kay. I'll close this as worksforme for now, then.
