ssh trust issue

Hi, i am setting up ssh trust setup between two servers where SVRA is a solaris box and SVRB is a Red Hat Linux.

It is asking for the password all the time.

I have copied over the SVRA:/home/nagios/.ssh/ as authorized_keys on
to SVRB:/dat01/home/nagios/.ssh/
-bash-3.00$ ssh -vvv

debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password
debug3: start over, passed a different list publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password
debug3: preferred publickey,keyboard-interactive,password
debug3: authmethod_lookup publickey
debug3: remaining preferred: keyboard-interactive,password
debug3: authmethod_is_enabled publickey
debug1: Next authentication method: publickey
debug1: Trying private key: /home/nagios/.ssh/identity
debug3: no such identity: /home/nagios/.ssh/identity
debug1: Trying private key: /home/nagios/.ssh/id_rsa
debug3: no such identity: /home/nagios/.ssh/id_rsa
debug1: Offering public key: /home/nagios/.ssh/id_dsa
debug3: send_pubkey_test
debug2: we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password
debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method
debug3: authmethod_lookup password
debug3: remaining preferred: ,password
debug3: authmethod_is_enabled password
debug1: Next authentication method: password's password:

In order to test the SVRA, i have copied SVRA:/home/nagios/.ssh/ to a solaris machine SVRC directory /home/nagios/.ssh/aithorized_keys and i can login without a password.

Please let me know where i am wrong in my first set up.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Be sure to add public key correctly (no additional chars (spaces or whatelse) )

This may be a version 1 vs version 2 sshd problem. By taking the least common denominator approach try using rsa keys to start with. By default systems are supposed to fall back to ssh v1, but that can be prevented in the sshd.conf file.

Did you place the public key in a file: authorized_keys in the .ssh directory, where .ssh has correct protections -- 700?

Yes, the .ssh directory has 700 permission.

And did you try rsa keys?
Does the home directory have at most 750? -- the one where the .ssh directory lives?
