ssh_ exchange-identification: Connection closed by remote host

Dear All,

Recently our server has been giving the error:

"ssh_ exchange-identification: Connection closed by remote host"

The error causes the server to become in accessible via ssh and the services are stopped/hung. The server has to be restarted to make it working normal again.
The server is working on RHEL3.

Pls. help in finding the solution to the problem.


Regards,
Vinod.

It's found that the server gives some SCSI related error. The problem occurs sometimes after 2 months and sometimes every week. Should i replace the server or what? Pls. suggest ?

Regards,
Vinod.

vguleria,

Did you change the network interface of the system? or the IP address of the system? Are you accessing that on other host when that error occurs? If yes once you rebooted generate ssh key for the system and copy that to the host your having errors.

Thanks for the reply csonhand,

I also have the trace of the server's /var/secure/log/messages which is something related to SCSI:
