I have previously added each of the servers and clients into each others Know hosts to eliminate any problems there. I have discovered that I am able to use SSH key authentication between the Management node and the client, but not from the client back to the Management node. Password authentication will work for the SSH connection between the client and management node, but not key authentication. I have tried to copy the management node's private key, which I am assuming is /etc/vcl/vcl.key, to the client machine but to no avail. The client machine still prompts for a password when entering ssh

Hello Aaron

Can you log in into your Vsphere Client ESXI 4.1 Server the one
hosting the images
Go to Configurations
Under Software
Click on Security Profile
Click on Properties
Under Remote Access make sure you have
Remote Teach Support SSH is Running and Automatically Turned on

You should check if you can ssh without a password from the base image
to the management node but also and vice versa.

Also did you add in the IP range into trusted hosts?

I completed installing Cygwin SSHD and I'm attempting to run the vcld -setup
command.  My problem occurs in this step while creating a base image.  I am
able to get through all of the prompts and start the creation before the
script crashes.  I have checked the '/var/log/vcld.log' log file and this is
a portion of the output:

I have checked and am able to ssh between the management node and the
virtual machines using key authentication.

Please see the log file attached for more information.
