SSH problems after updating to 30.7.1.11: kex_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer Connection reset by...

After updating a few x440-g2 test switches to version 30.7.1.11 im unable to ssh into the switch a day after booting the new firmware. the error-message i get is:

kex_exchange_identification: read: Connection reset by peer
Connection reset by 172.28.32.18 port 22

the only way to get ssh back is logging in via webfrontend, then using the cli to “restart process exsshd”. after that i can login again, im not sure how long however, since yesterday after updating the switches, ssh still worked.

the logs on the switches show the following:

Am I blind? Where did you find it? It’s not in the Software Download Center, at least not for me.

thanks. the patched version got released and i already installed it.

 

i found another bug btw.: this new login counter shown after logging in:

There have been 0 successful logins since last reboot and 0 failed logins since last successful login
No Prior Logins by this user since last reboot

 

does not account for logins which get authenticated via ssh-key. only if i login using password the counter gets incremented. i don't care for that functionality tbh, but maybe someone else does.

 

Have a nice day!
