Regarding Install And Configure SFTP task

Hi Team,

Not sure, where did i make mistake, task submission failed with below error
“User james was able to SSH into app server 1, however user should only be allowed to make SFTP connection.
User james is not able to make SFTP connections”

Here’s the my /etc/ssh/sshd_config file configuration settings,

Did anyone faced this issue, Could someone check this? Thanks

Hi @reddyv0424

As error says user was able to make SSH connection but not SFTP connection. But as per requirements shared in the question SSH must not work for user only SFTP connections should work.

Hi Inderpreet,
Can you please check why it got failed?

@q69145 can’t find this task in your bucket, is this the one you mentioned about in another thread ?

yes Inderpreet, both are same. After you marked the task is ‘successful’, it is not showing in my daskboard.


Can you please update to me on this?
