We have a build system that needs an active ssh connection with mercurial and to do so, it needs an
ssh-agent loaded with a key constantly..
The thing is that, even though that after creating the ssh agent
eval $(ssh-agent -s) and setting up the environment variables:
env | grep SSH:
SSH_AGENT_PID=7601 SSH_CLIENT=***.***.***.*** 53371 22 SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-4gJ9y89gPzbg/agent.7600 SSH_CONNECTION=***.***.***.*** 53371 10.0.67.4 22
After I log out from them EC2 Instance, after a few hours of the program running and pulling repos, etc. It would suddenly get this error:
CommandError: (-1, 'remote: ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host', 'abort: no suitable response from remote hg!')
Then when I go and check the
env | grep SSH the only thing that is setup is the
SSH_CONNECTION and the
Why would this occur? Are these environment variables only setup in the session?
And if so, why would it only fail after long hours of already logging out?
How can I make so that these environment variable are always there so that it doesn't break my program by not having these 2 environment variables setup?
