I'm on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5, and my SSH client is behaving in a way I can't explain or resolve.
My goal is simply to connect to a server with:
ssh -A email@example.com
When I add
-v to this, I can see that my SSH client fails to try any key other than my
~/.ssh/id_rsa key. I've confirmed that ssh-agent is running, and used
ssh-add -l to confirm the key I want is added.
Here's what I'm running in my local bash prompt:
# Run ssh-agent bash-3.2$ eval $(ssh-agent) Agent pid 7786 # Confirm it's running bash-3.2$ sudo ps aux | grep ssh-agent josh 7794 0.0 0.0 2432772 676 s000 S+ 1:32PM 0:00.00 grep ssh-agent josh 7786 0.0 0.0 2480640 2180 ?? Us 1:31PM 0:00.04 ssh-agent # Login successfully by explicitly specifying a key bash-3.2$ ssh -i sandbox firstname.lastname@example.org Last login: Tue Aug 18 20:13:31 2015 from X.Y.189.46 CoreOS stable (723.3.0) core@ip-10-200-4-138 ~ $ exit logout Connection to 126.96.36.199 closed. # Now attempt to connect using ssh-agent bash-3.2$ ssh-add sandbox Identity added: sandbox (sandbox) bash-3.2$ ssh -A email@example.com # My just-added key isn't tried, so I'm prompted for a password firstname.lastname@example.org's password:
Any help would be much appreciated!
Update: As requested, here's the verbose output:
