Hi Guys,

I got the following error on two VSP 7200 switches. Got it solved on 1 switch by disabling and re-enabling SSH, but on the other switch, this doesn't work.

There are no active sessions, increasing the max-session allowed doesn't help, setting the timeout to 1 second to get "old" (there are none) session closed... But without any luck.

disabling rsa-auth did the trick on the last one, I could re-enable it after first ssh connections was successful.

Any one experience with this? Why does this happen?

Thanks!

Jasper

Also, XMC can't backup the switch when I re-enable the RSA-AUTH...
