Centrify-Enabled OpenSSH on Ubuntu 10Problem:
Attempting to SSH into a Ubuntu system with an AD account fails with a "Broken Pipe
Connecting via SSH with a local account (non-AD) works with no issues.Cause:
On Ubuntu 10.04, the lib_pthread
library is too old.
When attempting to SSH with an AD account, the client remoting in tries do Single-Sign-On, however GSSAPI cannot obtain a mutex through lib_pthread
, and so fails. This error event in turn closes the connection with the given error.
(As of time of writing; Ubuntu is already on version 13 with version 10 Desktop already at end-of-life support and Server ending in 2015)Workaround:
from the SSH configuration:
, find and edit the following lines:
Once the process has restarted, try to SSH into the server again to test the connection.Resolution:
Since the issue is in an older version of lib_pthread
, it is recommended to update to a more recent version of Ubuntu.
Please note that this is not a Centrify issue.
