    We involve from a Linux environment to remote execute Enterasys Switch command without user-intervention.

    Here is what we did for the testing (for production, we need to write python script):
    1. From linux to another Linux server to execute “pwd” command
    sshpass -padmin123 ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no root@10.10.10.10 pwd
    /root
    It works as expected.

    2. From linux to Enterasys Switch (10.10.10.12) login as “admin” user
    [root@bwc ~]# sshpass -padmin123 ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no admin@10.10.10.12

    Also as expected, it is indeed login to the switch as “admin” user.

    3. From linux to Enterasys Switch (10.10.10.12) login as “admin” user to run a supported command it fails
    [root@bwc ~]# sshpass -padmin123 ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no admin@10.10.10.12 show ssh
    Received disconnect from 10.10.10.12: 2: Packet integrity error.

    What is Enterasys driver's type?
    Please help us better understand what the above error means and is there a way to overcome the issue?
    So far, Enterasys Switch is still a black-box for us, and your help is highly appreciated.
