The key was loaded following these steps and an error "Invalid Private Key Pass Phrase and Private key combination" is reported
1). In the FMS console navigate to Administration | Credentials
2). Click Manage Credentials
3). Click Add and then select "RSA Key".
4). Load the private key from a file
5). Enter the Pass Phrase and User Name, and then click Next.
There could be multiple causes:
1) The wrong passphrase was used, double check.
2) The key was imported in RFC-4716 format. To check this, view the private key in a text editor. IF it looks like this:
---- BEGIN SSH2 ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY ----
Comment: "2048-bit rsa, foglight@*************, Tue Jun 26 2012 19:07:\
Then the key is in RFC-4716 format, and the key should be in PEM format.
Please generate the key in PEM format and attempt to reload
NOTE: if using openssh to generate the key, not commercial ssh. If openssh, cannot be used then generate a _unencrypted_ private key with commercial ssh, and then that can be converted to the required PEM format. Save the key as a PEM file. OpenSSL does support PEM files using the -m flag.
This is what a PEM format key might look like:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
