Hello all,

I have my Windows 2003 image configured with cygwin.There is a root account
and a password has been set for that.
I even updated the vcld.conf file with the password.
When I make a reservation, the vguest(vcl01) machine starts but fails when
it tries to do an ssh on it..
I tried running  /usr/bin/ssh -i /etc/vcl/vcl.key  -l root -p 22 -x vcl01
'uname -s' 2>&1 from command line says Host key authentication failed.
When I start the cygwin on that vmguest machine, I saw that there is no root
account so I infer thats why the above ssh fails..
Do I need to add root account again on every vmguest machine?

Please help!!

A part of the log file is below.
