Re: ssh keys not working after server crash




> Attached are the instructions I used about a year ago to install and it?s been working fine until about 3 weeks ago.  The server crashed (due to MS patches I believe) and when it came up the system didn?t look right..  I installed syslog-ng to see if it would help me get some logging.

Not sure what your trouble is. The client's output of ssh -vv when the
authentication fails might help to debug it.

If sshd can't read the client's public key, then for sure that would cause
the authentication to fail. I don't have sshd installed on any of the hosts
I can get to right now, but maybe someone who does could post their output
of 

ls -ld ~ ~/.ssh ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

so you could compare your permissions to theirs.

One thing to try is to rerun ssh-host-config (from an admin shell I
believe).
