Re: Problem with ssh on Windows 2012 R2

Having been able to check all group policies, I cannot see how any that I apply might cause this behavior - they are exclusively related to audit logging and WSUS. I have also manually reset and reconfigured local policy.

come believe this is caused by a group policy (I can't look at all of
those unfortunately).  It might be worth a try to set up a 64bit Cygwin,

If you only ever intend to log into this machine using a single account
(for administration), you can also have the sshd run under that account,
as what fails is likely the switch to another user.  I've been trying to
debug this with Corinna a while back, but she couldn't reproduce it in
her environment and the only fishy thing going on in the strace is that
the switch to a different user fails for no apparent reason.
