Yay! The above addition, tweaked for our setup, did the trick. No more SSH warnings. Now, I'm sorry to say, I've got a whole new group of warnings, starting with: ______________ 2010-02-03 10:37:35|2273|1:13|image|utils.pm:run_ssh_command(6180)|executing SSH command on vmguest-1: |2273|1:13|image| /usr/bin/ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key -l root -p 22 -x vmguest-1 '$SYSTEMROOT/System32/cmd.exe /c "mkdir \"C:/Cygwin/home/root/VCL\""' 2>&1 |2273|1:13|image| ---- WARNING ---- |2273|1:13|image| 2010-02-03 10:37:35|2273|1:13|image|Windows.pm:create_directory(831)|failed to create directory on vmguest-1: C:/Cygwin/home/root/VCL, exit status: 126, output: |2273|1:13|image| bash: C:\WINDOWS/System32/cmd.exe: Bad address |2273|1:13|image| ( 0) utils.pm, notify (line: 737) |2273|1:13|image| (-1) Windows.pm, create_directory (line: 831) |2273|1:13|image| (-2) Windows.pm, copy_capture_configuration_files (line: 5908) |2273|1:13|image| (-3) Windows.pm, pre_capture (line: 179) |2273|1:13|image| (-4) Version_5.pm, pre_capture (line: 85) |2273|1:13|image| (-5) vmware.pm, capture (line: 1202) |2273|1:13|image| (-6) image.pm, process (line: 162) ______________ ...and followed by other warnings that appear to be consequences of this one, and ending with failure. The mix of slashes and a backslash in "C:\WINDOWS/System32/cmd.exe" looks wrong to me, and it seems connected to $SYSTEMROOT, but that's as far as I can take it. Hoping the end of this tunnel arrives soon...
