Could you please expand on that. I've got one server where
PasswordService dies every couple of months. And my key-based SSH
login doesn't work.
How can I setup SSH so that key-based connections will still work
if PasswordService has died? And no, I don't have better definition
of 'PasswordService has died' since the only way I have found to
recover is power cycle the machine. And the log files have not shed
any light on the issue.
The only reason I know it's PasswordService is that I happened to
have a shell open one time and was able to do some investigation.
But I had to quickly power cycle (sudo wasn't working obviously)
since customer was screaming for machine to come back.
Two, why not start a different topic/thread about your
PasswordService issue - since it is - a totally different and
separate issue ?
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
