Invalid Private Key File error

Jump to solution

I'm attempting to upload an SSH public key to DDMi using Key Based Authentication for DDMi agent deployment. The file is in a *.ppk file format. What type of file format is DDMi expecting for this key? TXT?

The format .PPK is used by PuTTY but HP wants OpenSSH format. Use PuTTY gen to convert your key.

 

You can also copy and paste the public key from the top section into file.
