ssh access denied on Windows cluster

I have installed copssh1.3.3 server on W2k and connect from Unix client.
"lingl" is a local account on W2K that can manage windows cluster resource.

If I use password-authentication, I can see the cluster information on Windows.
hp:/fcshome/users/lingl> ssh lingl@focpw001
lingl@focpw001's password:
Last login: Tue Aug 30 14:11:07 2005 from hp
-bash-2.05b$ cluster FOCP resource
Listing status for all available resources:

Resource Group Node Status
-------------------- -------------------- --------------- ------

But if I use non-password authentication, I will get a Access Denied error:
hp:lingl:/tmp> ssh lingl@focpw001
Last login: Tue Aug 30 14:13:37 2005 from hp
-bash-2.05b$ cluster FOCP resource
System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.
-bash-2.05b$

Could you please advise what is the root cause?

Thanks.
Lisha

Re: ssh access denied on Windows cluster

Do you get access denied for every command you try or is this something specific with the cluster command ?

Re: ssh access denied on Windows cluster

I can run other command like "ls -l" etc.

Re: ssh access denied on Windows cluster

This is strange :-)

What I observe that you initiate ssh connection to one of the cluster nodes : ssh lingl@focpw001, and ask for a cluster status requiring access to the other node as well. This may not be so straightforward as we think, since lingl is a local user on focpw001.

Maybe you need a domain account for that purpose.
