Thread: Get a file with SFTP

  1. #1

    Default Get a file with SFTP


    I want to get a File via SFTP. But using the Job-Step: “Get a file with SFTP” I get the error:

    Cannot connect to
    Com.jcraft.jsch.JSchException: invalid privatekey: sftp_0066
    invalid privatekey: sftp_0066

    (screenshots in attachment)

    Trying whit the same parameter whit WinSCP- it works!

    Why it does not work whit Pentaho!?

    Thank you very much in advice!

    I resolved the problem. The step needs the key in a pem- format (not in a pkk). -->
    Start PuTTYgen. Load your private key in
    .ppk format. Then go to Menu > Conversions > Export > OpenSSH. This creates a key in .pem format.
    --> It works.
