KBI 310558 Issue Addressed: System Down Rule Cannot Detect Wrong Passwords In SSH Option


Issue Addressed in Argent AT 3.1A-1307-A


Tue, 25 Jun 2013


System Down Rule checking SSH logon/logoff is not broken when SSH logon fails because of a wrong password.

Technical Background

Argent Guardian Ultra uses PLINK.EXE to test connectivity with Linux/Unix servers.

The System Down Rule is broken if PLINK.EXE returns with a non-zero exit code.

Unfortunately, PLINK.EXE returns with a zero exit code when the server access is denied.


Upgrade To Argent Advanced Technology 3.1A-1307 or later
