This article applies to BoKS 6.7.0, 6.7.1, 7.0.0 and 7.1.0.


SSH fails intermittently with error message "Permission denied".
If there are an excessive number of messages in the servc queue, then boks_bridge on the Replicas (or Master) closes the requesting connections from boks_bridge on the Server Agents. Before that it sends a STATUS_EOF message to boks_bridge on the Server Agents, but boks_bridge on the Server Agents doesn't handle this status message, which results in an error causing the SSH failure.
