I just built an instance and accessed it via SSH using the private/public keyset that was added during instance creation.
I now want to access the same instance, but from a different machine. I followed these steps
1. Created a new private/public key on my Mac
2. Imported the public key in the 'key-pairs' tab of the 'access & security' area (https://dashboard.rc.nectar.org.au/project/access_and_security/)
3. Hard rebooted the instance
4. SSH in using the following command:
ssh -i /Users/.../nectar/keys/avLabMac.key firstname.lastname@example.org
The result is:
Permission denied (publickey)
I have been through the various strategies specified in 'troubleshooting SSH access...' (https://support.ehelp.edu.au/support/solutions/articles/6000149723-troubleshooting-ssh-access-to-a-nectar-instance). But nothing seems to work.
Can I access my instance from two different machines? If so how?
This has been resolved - by nectar help staff. The answer was to copy across the original keys that the instance was set up with, to the new computer.
