HCI know_hosts file


I'm trying to connect to a SuccessFactors SFTP server from HCI using the SFTP adapter.

I understand that I have to add a known_hosts file in the Manage Security Material section even if I'm using User Name/Password authentication.

I installed OpenSSH on my laptop and ran the following command.

"ssh-keyscan -t rsa"

....and got the following response:

"# SSH-2.0-1.82_sshlib xxxx ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABEQAAAQEA2rHzZK6MtRHtHwfWLba9UN8u2uy7zhBrRR/ZgTfzrLAZzINcV1DwehXJAv7OHYGAOeNEOKo4dkZ1gCoO4thfhLrkv5hlTydZuBylKpSDr0GxYIOaWKWfHVXxgCQUCAyMkopIMYQfUhcMfGBXPRLEEPqTWA1zflSf9yrJgNxL/oGZkF+40ZjeBaUPW8/JOLeWtKnh3hyxzMmw5P6OVqUl58iALGjLRcYzvELxneOgn4wTlvEenNJrANbD/9L6cDUPbfZEqTFOpLznjW68yPZ+L7f6KIDmiWXIJA2PturoSbjAvbZQU9oR8ZMtF4aAs1RsKxckjGpLyhDyTWnq3/C34Q=="

I pasted this into a text file and deployed it in HCI Manage Security

However I'm still getting the following error in HCI Monitor Message Processing:
"org.apache.camel.componant.file.GenericFileOperationFailedException:Cannpt connect to sftp://9999999X@https:22, cause: https"

  • Hello Jonathan,

    Were you able to resolve the above issue?

    I am currently facing this issue even after deploying the known_hosts file.

    Go to the URL below:

    Follow the installation instructions and run the following command:

    ssh-keyscan -t rsa

    Copy the output Text File. It'll look something like this: ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABEQAAAQEA2rHzZK6MtRHtHwfWLba9UN8u2uy7zhBrRR/ZgTfzrLAZzINcV1DwehXJAv7OHYGAOeNEOKo4dkZ1gCoO4thfhLrkv5hlTydZuBylKpSDr0GxYIOaWKWfHVXxgCQUCAyMkopIMYQfUhcMfGBXPRLEEPqTWA1zflSf9yrJgNxL/oGZkF+40ZjeBaUPW8/JOLeWtKnh3hyxzMmw5P6OVqUl58iALGjLRcYzvELxneOgn4wTlvEenNJrANbD/9L6cDUPbfZEqTFOpLznjW68yPZ+L7f6KIDmiWXIJA2PturoSbjAvbZQU9oR8ZMtF4aAs1RsKxckjGpLyhDyTWnq3/C34Q==

    You can now deploy this known_hosts file in HCI

    Hi Sriprasad

    Try running the command ssh -V

    Let me know if that does the trick.
