Hello,
=20
I've been trying to run some commands on remote machine over ssh as a
cron job. It works fine if I manually run it on command line but it
does not run right if I run it as a cron job. I get 0 exit status which
is strange. I found "debug2: channel 0: read failed" message when I ran
it with -vvv options. I tried both ssh1 with rsa1 key and ssh2 with rsa
key.

Here are 2 output from the ssh.

And following is from crontab.

Any suggestions on why this is not working?
