What does "Authenticated with partial success" mean? I installed there
beta servers in the past two days and two of them SSH fine but one is
giving us grief. I can duplicate the error from Raleigh (posted
below). Basically, the user is prompted for a password, they get the
"Authenticated with partial success" message and they are prompted
again, get the message again, they are prompted a third time, they get a
slightly different message (no please try again) and they are returned
to the prompt. This is a RH 7.2 installation that is pretty much "out
of the box" using OpenSSH_2.9p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL
userid at servername's password:
Authenticated with partial success.
Permission denied, please try again.
Unfortunately, I'm not 100% sure that we are getting the whole story
(the server is up in the mountains). This person who initially reported
the problem could well have tried to generate a new key or something --
or maybe this server had this particular problem from the get go.
I did see something about reverse looking failure causing a similar
problem but since I can go to the same servers via SSH from other
machines, I don't feel that is the issue.
