ssh amd64 whoami
ssh smithfield whoami
which then also does not print the expected result on all machines!
I am expecting "illenseer", but on amd64 it was "sshd_server"
(whereas on the 32bit smithfield machine it was "illenseer" correctly).
I expect that this falls into the category of "known issue" but I can't
tell without the cygcheck output, which got snipped because you zipped it.
In any case, check if both are running the server as sshd_server or
SYSTEM/LocalSystem. I'm guessing that you're running sshd on smithfield
as "illenseer". Either that, or you're using password authentication
on smithfield. The latter is a better workaround for now than the former.
