- Did you check /var/run/sshd.log? If it's empty it's probably
the domain user has no write permission.
- Does the domain user have an entry in the local /etc/passwd? sshd
needs that when checking file ownership. And it allows to
user to cygrunsrv without the "domain\win_username" syntax.
- Did you chown /etc/ssh* and /var/empty to the domain user when
to start the service under that account? That's a must have.
It's taken me a while to get to this, but changing the above
mentioned permissions did the trick. I can now log on and access
network shares! This will make the build engineers' lives a lot
easier. Thank you for a great product and for all the help on this
Well, I spoke a little too soon. I got this working on two systems,
but can not get it to work on a third. The ssh daemon appears to
start (neither cygrunsrv -S nor starting it from the Services Panel
gives an error), but it really does not. The Event Viewer
Application log shows the following:
The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( sshd ) cannot be
found. The local
computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to
display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use
flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for
details. The following
information is part of the event: sshd: PID 2920: service `sshd'
failed: signal 11
Any ideas what could be raising signal 11 (SIGSEGV) and how I would
go about debugging this? ssh access was working to this machine
before I changed the file system permissions and the account
information for the sshd service.
