Which logs detail SSH key or SCP push issues on a Cisco Email Security Appliance?
Environment:Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA), all versions of AsyncOS
The ESA can be configured to use SSH public/private key pairs for authentication. When the ESA has trouble authenticating, you can learn more about the issue by investigating the error_logs. Additionaly, if you have alerts configured, you should also receive an email notification of the issue.
Below is an example of an error_log entry for an invalid key issue:
Fri Aug 26 17:23:24 2005 Critical: Log Error: Push error for subscription status: SCP failed to transfer to 10.1.1.2: Permission denied (publickey,password). lost connection
