RE: ERROR: A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated




I did not add the password to the registry (not knowingly in any case). When we initially setup, we logged in by providing the password and used ssh-copy-id to setup the key.

Good detective work.   I need to think about why key only authentication would cause an impact.

Did you add the password to the registry?
(Log in as the user and the run "passwd -R").

To get proper identity from a filesystem basis, a process still needs to log in.
SSH uses a behind the scene login if it finds the password.  If you log in directly, it doesn't need to access the registry one.

Here's what I just did:

1. created new local administrator account 2. ran mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd 3. removed all instances of server name in /etc/passwd (ie. MYSERVERNAME+) 4. remotely connected successfully 5. successfully ran schtasks, it listed all jobs configured 

I just retried with the other user, where I connect specifying a shared key and got the error message.

For good measure, I changed the password on the problematic user, connected directly without the key and provided the password. I then ran schtasks and it ran fine. It listed all the jobs configured.

It would seem that our issue is related to connecting over SSH using a shared key.

Does ssh with Administrator and running schtasks fail as well?
