SCP command through ITIM does not work


We have two Linux box (Machine A and Machine B). Standalone application(ITIM) running on Machine A. Target file to copy is available on Machine B.

SSH Handshaking done between Machine A and Machine B using normal user "ssh".

Standalone application running on Machine A under user "root".

Standalone application on Machine A invokes SCP command to copy the file from Machine B to Machine A. The SCP command executes successfully but file is not copied to Machine A. Message returned by SCP command is
"THIS IS A PRIVATE COMPUTER SYSTEM ---USAGE MAY BE MONITORED AND UNAUTHORIZED ACCESSOR USE MAY RESULT IN CRIMINAL OR CIVIL PROSECUTIONPermission denied, please try again.Permission denied, please try again.Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)."

If I manually login to Machine A and execute same SCP command I am able to copy file without any issues.

Any pointer on why invoking SCP command through standalone application give above message and file is not copied?

Thanks in Advance!

Are you sure you are connecting to the same machine each time?

Yes, I am sure that Machine A invokes command to copy remote file from Machine B. The Machine B name/ip is configured in our properties file, so there is no change that Machine A tries to copy file other than from Mahcine B.
